Speaker bio

I’m a Creative Technologist with over 12 years of experience.
Being a Creative Technologist, I’ve worked closely with artists & other creative from several agencies across the Globe.

My last job at iGoa (www.igoa.in) got me the opportunity in 2012-13 to use Javascript for a project originally intended to be built with Flash - www.kenandogulu.com.tr. Taking this opportunity, I delved deep into Javascript and since then have continued to use Javascript for UI, Animation & Data Visualization.
