I began to have piano lessons at the age of twelve and immediately developed a passion for music. I entered Uludag University and studied classical guitar and piano between 1986-1991. After teaching guitar in Uludag University, Bursa for a year, I moved to England and I turned my energies to compose music. I studied composition with Sıdıka Özdil in London and quickly developed an interest in contemporary music in 1992. I entered Middlesex University, London and continue to study composition with Deborah Morrison between 1994-1997. After the graduation, I opened a recording studio and worked as composer, producer, guitarist and songwriter. Taking inspiration from formal classical training to the various type of music, music-technology and my special interest in visual, I developed an interest in film music. That lead me to study composing for film and TV at Kingston University, London between 2009-2010.
