A 1977 graduate of The Cooper Union in New York City, Doonan began his career in politics circulating petitions for an anti-war congressional candidate in Springfield MA in 1968. In 2008 he was elected Village Mayor of Greenwich, New York. He was re-elected to a second four year term in March 2012.

Shortly before 9/11, Doonan left full time employment to become a self-employed web developer. Shortly after 9/11 Doonan changed his party registration to Green as a silent protest against vengeance and not justice.
