    efficient..responsible..honest..hardworking! I studied Sociology (BA) and Human Ecology (MA). I made my internship in media agencies, and have experience as a volunteer, researcher, project manager, documentary production, photographer, translator, transcriber and social media expert. My main focus is environment, science, culture and media. Because of my works and interests I travel a lot and so far I lived in United States, Turkey, Sweden and Poland. Right now, I live in the Netherlands. I have my own mobile-shop of handmade accessories and I work on restoration and renovation projects. I am open to all possibilities and believe in learning, sharing knowledge and being helpful towards one another. When I am working, I meet the deadlines and check everything on all levels before I hand it in. I have fluent English and Turkish in reading, writing and speaking. These days, I am learning Dutch. Soon I will be able to work with it too.

    Translator & Backend-Developer

    Germany - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    The past years confronted me with several interesting challenges regarding my career. On the one hand I worked as an Software Engineer, focusing on developing and planning software projects and realizing them in PHP/C#/VBS. On the other hand I've come in touch with several advertising related topics. Most of my clients have been small companies with anything from 5 to 20 employees, which required flexibility and the readiness to delve into new topics and tasks. My free time added a new layer of skills and practice due to the fact that I used it to write articles and blog entries, most notably about computer games and poetry. Nowadays I'm working as an Information Manager which leaves several of my acquired skills useless - I want to use and develop them further.
