About Me

Welcome to my page! I am Aya Ogihara.
I am a web developer with a background in customer service and I am always open to freelance, and collaborating opportunities in Auckland area or remotely.

When I was in Japan, I was a kimono dressmaker and was deeply interested in Japanese tradition. Moving abroad, my interest has shifted from tradition to the future, and I am fascinated by the wonderfulness of technology, which I believe is a symbol of the future.

I have an artisanal spirit and I am interested in web development that allows bringing both the technical and visual aspects of digital products to life. I enjoy keeping up to date with the continuous changes in the world of technology.

I consider myself an advocate for change with an open-mind to ideas for further growth. I am also excellent at collaborating with stakeholders, clients, and designers and enjoy working in a highly collaborative and supportive work environment.
