ABOUT ME

 

Welcome to my personal blog and thanks for your interest to get to know me better. 

Let me start from the beginning. 🙂 I was born and raised in Konya, a city which is located in the middle of Turkey (It was the capital city of Anatolian Seljuk Empire in 11-13th centuries).

When I was in primary school, my parents bought me a computer as a school report card gift. Then, I started to spend my hours after school to discover this amazing device. A couple of months later, my father was tired of taking my PC to repair shop because of my “discovery sessions” so he decided to register me for a PC course. In that summer, I attended Computer Operator Course which is organized by Ministry of Education. At the end, I learned the basics of computer hardware and software and also I recieved a certificate of achievement as the youngest participant (11 years old). In that period of time, besides to my interest on PC, I also really enjoyed to play basketball, and doing taekwondo and karate-do in my spare time.

High school times passed very fastly and after my graduation from Konya Anatolian High School (one of the oldest high school in Turkey, established in 1889), I started to study on Industrial Engineering at Erciyes University. As a person who ties his shoes after calling elevator to spend time wisely, I really enjoyed while learning optimization techniques for real world problems. 🙂 Also, I attended more than 30 events such as technical visits to factories, conferences, and seminars. In summers, I did my internships at Bosch Rexroth and Torku Meat&Dairy Production Plants (local FMCG brand). In my 3rd year at university, I went to Debrecen/Hungary to study there for one semester with ERASMUS Exchange Programme Scholarship. During this time, I visited some other European countries and meeting with people from different cultural backgrounds has really effected on my worldview in a positive way.

After university, I had got an opportunity to work in airline business. Now, I have been working for Turkish Airlines as ticketing system management specialist to ensure a smooth ticket buying process in all sales channels of Turkish Airlines. In parallel with my work, I am doing my master degree on Marketing Management at Istanbul University. 

Although some people find them boring; I enjoy to talk about marketing, disruptive business models, and futurism. If you want to discuss something whether it is personal or professional, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

With my kind regards,

Mehmet
