About

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

I’m a front end developer who started out as a graphic designer in print before shifting to design and development on the web. Archon Digital is my blog, my personal repository of thoughts in digital form.

When I am not at work, I take photographs of the street life around me either in film or on digital.

Monday morning walk, Brgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig

Divisoria, Manila

Divisoria, Manila

On candids, Divisoria and editing on Adobe Lightroom for mobile. Another totally pointless post aiming to fill a blank text box from on my CMS. I really just want to post pictures now.
