Michael Finnen
Hey there, my name is Michael Finnen. Created in a laboratory several years ago, I am a part of the class of 2020. I am a very big history buff, I play lacrosse here at Oratory, and I do tend to enjoy a good video game or two here and there. This is now my first year writing for the Omega, but I will try my best to write high-quality articles. I intend to write mostly historical and educational articles, but I also wish to dive into current events and school-related articles, as well. If this interests you and you decide to give my articles a quick read, I very much appreciate it, and I hope you find them interesting.
