About

Hi, I'm Jon, I run Archon Digital.

I'm a graphic designer who started in print before shifting to design and development on the web.

Since 2005, I've been doing frontend development and some work on servers both during work and in my free time. When I am not at work, I take photographs of the street life around me either in film or on digital.

I currently work in the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office as technical lead in the development of the Official Gazette PH, Open Data PH and its other online initiatives.

This is my personal website. What I post here, my views, rants, etc... does not in any way represent that of the office that I work for.
