Who am I?
Hi there and thanks for visiting my page! My name is Justin Ogihara and I graduated from Cal Poly—SLO with a B.S. in Liberal Studies and a minor in Political Science. I'm hoping to become an elementary school teacher in the near future, preferably 4th or 5th grade. After teaching for a couple of years, I plan on moving up to administration, and hopefully become the U.S. Secretary of Education (*fingers crossed*).
What I do at iFixit…
September 2019 will mark my two-year anniversary at iFixit as an Educational (EDU) Assistant. As an EDU assistant, I manage the Technical Writing Project that spans over 70 universities and colleges. In addition to the EDU program, I’m a moderator on our own iFixit Meta forum! And whenever we’re invited to local school events, I like being the face behind Rosie the Repair Bear.
Things I do for fun
Aside from education, I'm very passionate about sports and living a healthy lifestyle in general. You can catch me watching and participating in most physical activities, especially baseball and basketball. Go Dodgers and Lakers!
I also LOVE video games (who doesn’t?). Of course sports/fighting games are always fun when playing with friends, but I’m a sucker for single-player story games. I just recently finished God of War for the PS4, and WOW was that a great game! I’ll always have a soft spot for Pokémon, and hopefully someday I’ll be able to catch them all in Pokémon Go!
I’m also part-owner/ownee to two Shiba Inu residing with my parents in Los Angeles. Despite their cuteness and human-like personalities, they can sometimes be a handful to take care of. Shiba Inu are definitely not for first-time dog owners, so if you’re thinking of adopting one (or maybe two), I’d recommend watching this short video to see if you’re ready for the challenge!
…more to come!

Answer to "Removal of silicone grout"Hi there @sassylady101 and thanks for posting on this forum. While I’m not an expert in bathroom repairs, I have removed and replaced old caulking in some old bathtubs before. In my experience, the best way to remove caulking would be to use a caulking removal tool. The tool I’ve used in the past is similar to this one on Amazon. I haven’t used any removers like Goo Gone before, but pairing a remover with the caulking removal tool may work out in your favor. Let us know if there’s anything we can do to help. Good luck and happy fixing! Justin Ogihara
Answer to "How do I upload a guide a repair manual for a 65in Vizio"Hi there Tony, Thanks for posting on this forum. We’re excited for you to contribute to the website! Before you do, make sure you know the model number of your device. This will let other users know whether or not they own the same device. Once you’ve found the model number, you should create a new device page for your device through this link.
