Personal & Professional Profile

Hi!

My name is Ata D. Birol. I am an Information Systems and Operations Management student at George Mason University. My interest in technology dates back to as early as my childhood, where I enjoyed spending time in my dad’s local TV station. I began my entrepreneurial journey at the age of 14 by starting a web hosting company. Within 8 months into my journey, I have reached more than 50 clients, giving web hosting, reseller hosting and online radio hosting services.

Today, I have professional work experience in front end web development and e-commerce. I also, actively built projects that supports small businesses and startups in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads area. When working with small businesses and startups, my main goal is to establish strong online presence by fallowing the most recent search engine optimization practices, and develop effective marketing goals that are driven by analytical findings.

While maintaining expertise in different aspects of web technologies, I am highly interested in diversifying my skills in Product Development and User Experience Design areas. I intend to get my hands on every innovative mobile app at their early stages and track their progress throughout their maturation period. By observing these new or existing apps and platforms, I identify new trends in social networking and technology and guide my clients with their branding and marketing efforts.
