I was born in Istanbul, Turkey and immigrated to Montreal Canada in 1971 at age of 2 with my parents. By 1991 I made the move out west to Banff, Alberta.
I worked for the then CP Hotel – Banff Springs (Now the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel) on the Front Desk . In 1993 I was part of the opening team at the Rimrock Resort Hotel in the Concierge daprtment.
By 1995 I started my first business guiding Mountain bike tours in the Canmore & Kananaskis areas and also freelanced as a Tour and Travel guide in the Canadian Rockies for a variety of tour , incentive and corporate companies. I was requested later to the Rimrock once again to run the Concierge / Guest Services Department and became the Chef Concierge becoming the first Les Clef d’Or member of the hotel. I also became the Vice Director for the Alberta Les Clef’ d’Or chapter.
In 2002 I started a Video production and photography company where I have been filming and producing tv, corporate and weddings till this day.
I am an appointed Marriage Commissioner by the Province of Alberta and also member of Rotary International in Canmore.
