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.
