After his uncle’s untimely death in 1987, Donald continued to work in the computer field, as a product developer and marketer of software products.
In 2002, Donald earned a Master of Arts in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh, and he worked in community mental health as a licensed child and adolescent therapist. In addition to being the Warhola family historian, he also works with children who have special mental health needs through the Education Department of The Andy Warhol Museum.
