Merhaba! I’m Emir Aydin.

I didn’t enjoy playing games too much unlike other children; what bothered me was more about how did that magic machine work. So, I started messing around in the Windows folder when I was 10. We didn’t have the internet at home back then, so I stayed after school to observe this dazzling thing. I’d download tutorials into my floppy disk and then bring home to learn stuff.

Of course, I’d always fight with my brother for the only computer at home, which was specifically for mom’s work purposes. Almost a year later, I started teaching myself programming with web design. Shortly after, I moved to PHP to learn the magic of dynamic approach to create applications. Then JavaScript. Then Java. And it went on and on…

Meanwhile, I fell in love with typography, and generally designing and organizing things. I fell in love with fine art, since I wasn’t a very good drawer, I started making my dreams true in Photoshop. Feeding my soul with those inspirations, I did some cool design work too. When I got into high school, I ran around the city to put the local companies on the web by contracting them.

I graduated from Tarsus American High School in Turkey and moved to Montreal, Canada to study computer science at McGill University. I have started two companies, one of which failed. Then I moved to Vancouver, Canada to work for a San Francisco based company. Meanwhile, I focus on my side projects (products with revenue) in my free time. As you’re reading this, I’ll be looking forward to my next journey.

With this motivation, I got started in my entrepreneurial journey, yet I have to “suck out all the marrow of life” (warning: Dead Poets Society reference) to make it stand out.
