Ali studied Visual Arts and Communication Design at Sabancı University after graduating from Robert College. Becoming a designer had always been one of his primary objectives in life before he started working for advertising agencies. His dream turned out to be a nightmare and he decided to quit his career as a designer and look for a more suitable job for himself. Reading and writing were (and still are) his other favorite activities so he thought publishing industry would fit him well. He worked as the Culture and Arts Editor of Turkish Airlines’ in-flight magazines not much after he started working as an intern in 2010. He also worked as an editor for one of the largest digital publishers in Turkey, Mynet between 2013 and 2017. He wants to be one of the most known publishing professionals around the globe.
