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.
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.
So that’s Emir for you right here! I’ve spoken enough. Now, tell me more about yourself!
