Hello there! I'm Jon-Michael Lastimosa from Cebu, Philippines. This site mainly showcases my portfolio as a Senior Web Developer and Graphics Designer.

I'm currently developing my own WordPress theme called 'Lastimosa Theme' and it is based on Unyson Framework + Bootstrap 4. I'll be giving this theme for free. Please check it out in here.

I'm more of a Web Developer than a Web Designer. Though I love to do design work on Photoshop but I prefer programming because it is a more challenging task. You can checkout my coding skills on my GitHub account.

I'm a Programmer

GW Basic was the very first Programming Language I've learned way back in 1995. I had an "Excellence in Computer" award when I graduated in High School because of my effective skills in Turbo C programming. That inspired me to take up my Computer Engineering course.

I'm a Designer

My grandfather was a sculptor and being an artist runs in our blood. I love to draw and I've been playing around with Photoshop since year 2000 and has been improving my skills since then. Right now, I'm into Photography. I always love taking pictures and with my skills on post processing.

I'm a Photographer

Learning is a never ending curve. I always try to learn new things. Things that I love to do. I love to take photos using my DSLR and share them online. I'm also into cosplay and loves to shoot cosplayers. My wife is a cosplayer and I make the customs and props for her. 🙂
