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.
Research partnership with local youth arts nonprofit Urban ArtWorks around improving participant information management systems amidst rapid growth.
I'm Charlie Blue (they/them), a service designer & researcher based in Seattle.
My interests revolve around exploring how HCI experiences can mediate emotional healing and post-traumatic growth.
I recently completed a Master's of Human-Computer Interaction + Design at the University of Washington. I've been in Seattle since 2018: after graduating from Carnegie Mellon with a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering, I moved here 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.
