About Me

I am a very multi-disciplinary person and I love looking at different ways of creating impactful experiences that could change the way we live and connect. I have studied Industrial Design with a minor in Business at OCAD U. I have a performance background as a dancer & instructor with the National Ballet of Turkey, worked with an exhibit design firm in Toronto to choreograph dancing robots for a children’s museum in China, done extensive research on experiences that connect elderly with dementia & young children and also worked with kids with disabilities. All of these experiences fueled my fascination on how impactful sensory experiences can be to heal us. I have combined all my experiences and passions into one project called Sensorium1. Sensorium1 is awarded Cortex Design’s User Experience Award in 2019 at ACIDO.
