I began my professional career working as a research analyst at Istanbul based consultancy firm, The Oxford Business Group. Over the next years, I worked as an analyst with Berlin-based think tank European Stability Initiative and later as a program officer at the National Democratic Institute in Baku. 


I have spent time working and living in Turkey, Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, and the US.  


Some of my work led me to speaking engagements across the world, while others, allowed me to work as a trainer with communities at risk, activists, nongovernmental organizations, political parties and others. 


Today, I spend most of my time writing, while continuing my collaboration with a number of international organizations where I work as a consultant and/or project manager.
