Hi. I'm Caroline.

Full-Stack Web Developer.Software Engineer.


I'm a passionate and enthusiastic web-developer experienced in both frontend and backend development. Currently, I'm engineering software at Centro in Chicago.

I wake up every day excited to code. I love constantly learning new things, and teaching others what I know. Thanks for checking out my site and don't hesitate to get in touch.

Interactive Box Model Diagram: Teaching Box-Sizing

An Angular.js app to visualize the box-model. Controls for changing the value of box-sizing highlight its effects on element size and which properties contribute. Picked as one of Chris Coyer's fav demos and featured in various developer resource roundups, e.g., Speckyboy Design Magazine and Envato: 25 Useful Free Tools & Apps For Web Designers from 2015.
