Simge born in Istanbul, studied in Ankara, New York and Madrid. As an independent soul, she started her freelance career working in Netflix and TRT as a subtitle and dubbing translator while still studying in university.


Later, merging her passion for Social Media with her Translation and Interpretation academic background, she transformed herself into a Digital Nomad as a freelance Social Media Manager and Content Creator.


Based in Zurich and Madrid currently, she continues to look for rather unusual ways to make an income while making an impact.



Osman aspires to be a man of letters, although the chances are low (but never zero). He exercises reading, translating and editing texts written by others for now.


This interest made him the founder of an independent publishing house, Yort Books, which used to focus on literature, humanities, and cinema theory. His practice in photography and documentary film making proved that dealing with theory was cheaper and safer.


And, he does so.
