News Catalyst

Empowering local newsrooms
F ’19

In the fall of 2019, I worked at News Catalyst, building digital tools to empower local news organizations. My work at News Catalyst was supported by the Lenfest Institute.

  • Created OpenAlerts, a fully-featured and open source breaking news distribution system intended for local newsrooms. (Because OpenAlerts is open source, I remain on the project. See the Projects section.)
  • Worked with Tyler Fisher to create a management system for the American Press Institute’s “Table Stakes” program.
  • Helped build the technical foundation of PressPass, News Catalyst’s primary offering, and contributed to MuckRock’s Squarelet.
