Meghan Fitzgerald

Co-Founder

After 18 years as an educator, curriculum developer and school leader, Meghan has her dream gig—an entrepreneur/educator/mom who helps families everywhere, including hers, learn outside. Prior to Tinkergarten, Meghan worked as an Elementary School Principal, a Math/Science Specialist & and a teacher in public and private schools in NY, MA and CA. She earned a BA with majors in English and Psychology at Amherst College, an MS in Educational Leadership at Bank Street College, and was trained as a Forest School leader at Bridgwater College, UK. When she is with her kids, Meghan is that unapologetic mom who plays along with them in mud, dances in the pouring rain, and builds a darn good snow igloo with her bare hands.

Brian Fitzgerald

Co-Founder

Brian has been developing high growth consumer digital product businesses since 1995 that have reached hundreds of millions of people worldwide. His passion and focus is on building services that help people learn. Before starting Tinkergarten, he was VP of Product Development at Knewton, a global leader in adaptive learning, and prior to that was the VP/Intrapreneur of Audible Education (acquired by Amazon.com) where he developed products and services for Higher Education, K-12, and Early Learning. Brian was on the start up team that developed Rocketmail (acquired by Yahoo), and he later launched 50+ Yahoo consumer apps in leadership roles at the Silicon Valley HQ and London. He earned a BA in Entrepreneurship at Babson College and an MA at Columbia Teacher’s College. If Brian goes missing you’ll probably find him outside trail running, swimming in water of any temperature, or making his kids giggle into the wind as he pulls them in their chariot on his bike.
