Andrew Haeg

I'm a veteran journalist, design thinker and crowdsourcing pioneer, passionate about using technology to build empathy, uncover unmet needs and help develop a more accurate and grounded view of the world. I care about serving the information needs of communities, which is why I started GroundSource.

I have more than 15 years experience as a radio, print and digital journalist and nearly a decade as an "intra-preneur"​ at American Public Media, where I co-founded the Public Insight Network, a crowd-sourcing platform used by close to 80 newsrooms, and comprised of more than 180,000 sources.

Apart from my award-winning work in journalism innovation, I've taught design thinking and journalism at Stanford, Mercer University and The New School; have developed participatory games played millions of times (Budget Hero, the Budget Balancer, The Idea Generator and Medical Matchmaker); have run community design thinking workshops in Phoenix, Cleveland, Detroit, Miami, Macon.
