About Sean


Sean Donahoe was raised in the East Bay and has lived in Santa Cruz, Sacramento, Washington DC, London, and St. Petersburg. He is a proud alumni of the University of California Santa Cruz and the London School of Economics, where he studied International Relations, Post-Soviet Studies, Critical Political Theory, and Intelligence Studies. He infrequently homebrews and rides waves but is a frequent patron of the Jack London Farmers Market and frequent Amtrak rider.


Sean has a knack for politics and all its earnestness and absurdity, all of its principles and passions, and has yet to find a more compelling subject matter than the intersection of the emerging cannabis industry and the byzantine California political scene.


He lives in Oakland and can be reached at sean@operativecampaigns.com and on LinkedIn.
