I was born 4.06.1947 in Antakya-Turkey. Studied Civil Engineering and graduated in 1970 as an engineer. During university years as a student, I participated in a cartoon contest of then best known and most prestigious cartoon Magazine “Akbaba” in 1968 and won the grand prize. I worked as a cartoonist till the graduation in 1970. I got married in 1972, started working as a construction engineer. For very long years, I worked as an expatriate abroad. During this time, cartoon was only a hobby that I did at home. In 2007, after a voluntary retirement, I resumed cartoon work again as a freelance cartoonist. I participated many national and international exhibitions and won some prizes for the last two years. I live in Ankara, Turkey; married, have two children and one grandson.
