As Vice-Chair of Technology and Communications of LGBT Democrats of Virginia, the lead up to the Equality Breakfast adds a little stress to the usual routine. However, it was all worth it as the event came together and we had a room full of people celebrating and advancing equality, pride, and unity at this year’s event. Through Comit Strategies, I was proud to be a sponsor of the event.
Welcome! Let me introduce myself…
My name is Joel McDonald, and for the past five years I’ve been the owner and sole designer and web developer at Comit Strategies here in Virginia Beach, VA. This is my personal professional(ish) portfolio, which is a bit more fun than what I have on my business website. Have a look around, check out work I’ve done, see what I’ve been up to on my blog, send me a message, or let me know about a gig I might be a good fit for. I also run an awsome managed WordPress hosting and maintenance service over at WP Covered. Oh yeah, I’m also a member of the Virginia Beach School Board. If you want to keep up with my work on the board, check out my Facebook page.
Trying to start something?
Ready to tell me about your project and see if I’m a good fit?
A little of this, a little of that…
Hard to believe it’s been almost 11 years since coming back to Virginia after being in Colorado Springs and Kansas for two years. The beauty of the area was always something I could rely on to inspire me. Going back, the beauty was one again amazingly breathtaking. There’s a part of me that really feels like I belong in the mountains. Check out some photos from Garden of the Gods and Old Colorado City.
The National School Boards Association Conference this year was in Denver, Colorado. It’s always very insightful to see what divisions across the nation are doing and the challenges they are facing. Virginia Beach City Public Schools was well represented, as our superintendent, vice-chair, and members of senior staff presented at various sessions and spoke on various panels.
