I'm a venture capitalist at Intel Capital focusing on consumer internet, mobile and social media investments. Before Intel Capital, I worked at University Venture Fund, an early stage VC firm. Earlier, I held product management and development roles at Calix, an early stage startup developing next-generation access systems. During my tenure at Calix, I focused on digital media delivery systems and oversaw development of key features of the IPTV consumer experience. Earlier in my career, I started and grew the West Coast sales office for Alcatel’s semiconductor subsidiary.
I grew up in a beautiful city: Istanbul, and now I live in another beatiful city: San Francisco.
