VENICE, USA // As a third culture kid who moved around continents her whole life, Zeynep learned that creativity lives outside of the comfort zone, and the courage to explore the uncertain can be a powerful tool.
After getting her graduate degree in Cinema Studies at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Zeynep’s journey ran through global media companies to startup environments. She launched TV networks for Fox International Channels and VICE Media Group, wrote and produced for Al Jazeera English, started a boutique creative agency in Istanbul and executed campaigns for global brands as HP and Pernod Ricard. She built teams and worked with creatives in the US, UK, Brazil, Portugal and Turkey.
In 2015 Zeynep came to VICE Media Group to launch the VICELAND TV network. Within two years the channel became one of the most awarded in TV marketing with numerous Clios, Promax and Obie Awards. She now oversees brand and marketing initiatives across all of VICE Media Group properties and platforms. Her and her team enjoy the fact that no day is the same while driving a brand mission globally and at the speed of culture.
