About Cushing Donelan:
Cushing Donelan brings diverse experience in brand development and entertainment production to his role at Donelan Family Wines. Never one to sit on the sidelines, Cushing saw the opportunity to enhance the brand’s evolution and create new partnerships, and was eager to dig his hands into the family business. Truly a man of many interests, Cushing studied art history and studio art in college, including sculpture and metalwork. Following a backpacking trip to explore art and architecture throughout Europe, however, his growing interest in arts and entertainment led him to California to pursue a career in production. Through a series of internships, Cushing assumed an executive assistant role for actor Matthew McConaughey and McConaughey’s company, j.k. livin productions. In this role, Cushing assisted in the launch of j.k. livin’s clothing line, music label, and charitable foundation, in addition to the development of the company’s television and film projects.
Gaining valuable experience in business management, branding and production, Cushing went on to create the production company oneinarow, developing scripted and non-scripted television series – a company he remains involved with while working at Donelan Family Wines. Cushing graduated from Amherst College in Amherst, Mass., with a degree in Fine Arts. He now resides in Venice Beach, Calif., with his wife and daughter and enjoys being active in the community, playing hockey and lacrosse, and connecting with friends over a bottle of wine.
