Meet “Finny”

My name is Sir Finnegan, known as Finny to my school of family and friends. I am an academic interested in a wide range of topics and endeavors. My goal is to approach education in a way that integrates science, technology, engineering, art, and math to guide critical thinking while igniting discussion. I am also an explorer. I love to travel, although no wise fish will go anywhere without a porpoise. Nevertheless, I am always listening for tails of new opportunities! With the able assistance of my colleagues at Fishman Stewart, I curate a pop culture view of creativity with the goal of fostering innovation. While I am always bubbling up content, my goal is not to muddy the waters! If you are not already a recipient, take a peek at our FishTank® and FishBits® newsletter offerings. Let minnow what you think. Finally, not wanting you to be a fish out of water, Fishman Stewart is constantly scaling up a wide range of educational papers. They can be found at www.tackleboxinsights.com. I hope you find them a different kettle of fish than what you might typically find elsewhere.
