I am a multi instrumentalist/producer/composer located in Koycegiz, Turkey. I have been performing, recording and teaching music for the last 20+ years, and have an honor degree in composition. I want to help you make your songs become the best version they can be.
I have been playing guitar for 20+ years and had thousands of gigs both in Turkey where I live at the moment, and in NYC in which I lived for about 7 years. In the last 4 years or so, I have been a full time producer and mixing engineer. I work from my studio in Koycegiz, Turkey, but have access to additional studios in Istanbul. I also have access to top quality session players.
Even though my main genre is modern metal, I have worked with people from all genres including all types of rock and metal, edm, electropunk, pop, synthwave, and acoustic based songs.
I work almost 100% in the box myself, but if the song needs outboard gear, there are studios that I go to.
Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions! Tell me about your project and let’s see what we can do. Be it just guitar recordings, vocal tuning, and so on, or full on production, scoring for orchestra, or mixing.

In 2013 I moved to New York, and first worked as a session musician, and then formed my own electropunk duo called Dirty Heretics. In the meantime I started working on my own instrumental "guitar" album, and released it in September 2019. I moved back to Turkey in the beginning of 2020, and set up my own studio.
