Tan Tunali has been working as a freelance Turkey correspondent since the summer of 2013. Before his studies in Political Science and International Relations, he only knew Turkey from his annual holiday at the Mediterranean coast. In 2010, Tunali moved to Istanbul to participate in an exchange at Boğazici University. During the exchange he improved his Turkish and decided to return as a correspondent.

Tunali works for several Dutch and Flemish media, amongst others the ANP press agency, and newspapers such as Het Financieele Dagblad and De Tijd.
