Being one of the only musicians to ever graduate from Berklee College of Music in one year or less, he went on to tour the world, producing musically ground-breaking albums and playing with some of the biggest talents in the industry. His music has been described as "identifying the full range of human intellectual and emotional activity as the seedbed of musical art." Being an expert that transcends genres, he is consulted for many of Esen Productions' projects.

Starting to play piano at an early age, Cenk took full advantage of his musical heritage and talent to begin his musical journey. Having graduated from Berklee College of Music one year earlier than his peers, he jumped straight into the industry by releasing his first EP "Phases," which combined his influences of Jazz Fusion and electronic music. During his time in Boston, he was chosen to join Berklee's Global Jazz institute, which fosters creativity and musicianship through a variety of musical disciplines. His theoretical knowledge, unique compositions and emotional improvisations are a huge asset for the team.
