Alp was born and raised in Berlin, so it is pretty safe to say that he knows our beautiful capital city very well. He currently lives in Moabit and particularly likes going for walks at Plötzensee or in Volkspark Rehberge because they are the best spots to enjoy nature and some fresh air.
During his studies, Alp was able to gain a lot of practical experience in the field of controlling through internships and student jobs. However, after finishing his degree, his journey continued in the direction of programming - a field that has also interested him for a long time and where he has worked as a freelancer in web development most recently. In search of new challenges, Alp became aware of PICKMOTION's job advertisement and now supports our team as a controller!
In his free time, Alp likes to go bouldering. It’s a form of climbing, but it takes place without any protection and on rather low walls. Compared to rope climbing, the routes are much shorter, but also stronger and more varied. What he likes most about bouldering is the balance between strength and body weight the activity demands. At the same time, agility, sense of balance, coordination and creativity play an important role, too. In bouldering, the routes are often referred to as "problems", as the most efficient sequence of movements is usually not immediately obvious. So experience and creativity come into play, making the sport so diverse and fun!
His favourite PICKMOTION motif is „Blue Lake Adventures“ (APM-0115) which we have created in collaboration with @gaetan. That is because Alp is a big fan of nature photography and he particularly likes the composition of the mountains, the trees and the water. We are very happy to have Alp in our team and we are looking forward to solving all upcoming problems together!
