About Me

I was born and raised in Turkey. After graduating from high school in Turkey, I decided to pursue my degree at University of Toronto in lovely Canada. And this is how my journey started.

During my university years, I worked at Scotiabank as a Solutions Architect Intern and served on several boards and committees at the University of Toronto. I co-founded Roll in 2019 during my third year of study. Roll is the leading shared micro-mobility company in Canada.
