Media services for foreign media members in Southeastern
Turkey in Diyarbakir, Gaziantep, Sanliurfa, Mardin, Hatay, Kilis
and other cities
I am a freelance journalist and have been working as a fixer and translator for foreign
media mostly in east and southeastern Turkey since 1999.

I speak English, Kurdish, Turkish, German, Persian and some Arabic.I used to live in
Istanbul and Diyarbakir until 2011. After Syrian war started in 2011, I started to work in
Hatay (Antakya) Gaziantep, Kilis, Mardin, Sanliurfa along Syrian border and I worked with
most of the major broadcasters and print media at Turkey Syrian border.
Since 2011, I lived one year in Hatay, one year in Gaziantep, stayed several months
in Kilis and Sanliurfa. Now I am moving between those cites and Diyarbakir and Istanbul.
I know all that area well and have been to all over that area and to every single town along
800 km long Turkey Syrian border I also have worked in Iraqi Kurdistan and in Syria.
If you are planning to come to east or southeastern Turkey to any town along Syrian
border or anywhere else and think that you may need an experienced fixer, translator to
work with, please don't hesitate to write to me, I will be happy to write you back and
working with you.
