Hi, I'm Charlie Blue! As a service designer and researcher focused on wellbeing, I leverage my community-engaged research to make space for the nuance in people’s stories, my PM experience to frame opportunities by questioning norms, and my technical skills to build new possibilities.

About Me

I'm Charlie Blue, a service designer & researcher based in Seattle

My interests revolve around exploring how HCI experiences can mediate emotional healing and post-traumatic growth.

I'm currently a Master's student in the University of Washington's Human-Computer Interaction + Design program. I moved to Seattle in 2018 after graduating from Carnegie Mellon with a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering, in order to work as a Program Manager on Microsoft's Operating Systems Security team.

Outside of work, I love to explore Seattle by going on long bike rides with my partner, and then recover from those bike rides by snuggling our cat and eating heart-warming meals from Bryant Terry’s Vegetable Kingdom cookbook.
