About me

Serhan Ulkumen

Interactive Media Developer based in L.A.

I am a creator; it’s how I feed my instinctive hunger to be connected to others. I have loved interdisciplinary art forms from a young age. I've been editing photos, drawing, building with Lego, and making short films since I could hold a mouse. I made a contract with digital media: if I can imagine it, help me create it.

This thrilling ride is my way of being involved in creative work that transects multiple mediums and engages many people. The thrill comes from projecting an idea into a tangible form that can be shared with the greatest audience in the shortest time. The contract I made with digital media remains in force.
