My only mission is to build, create, and discover beautiful web applications. And do it well.
Pixels light my fire.
Hi, I'm Andrew Martin, an excitable freelance front-end web developer. I live with an intense passion for web development. On the better days, I wake up, hit the gym, grab a cold brew, and set up in my office, digging into a React app, setting up a Rails backend, or building an elegant interface using SASS and BEM standards. I also play nicely with Angular.js / MEAN, Ember, Node.js and find it absolutely esssential to work with build tools like Gulp and Webpack.
I should also mention that I've done my fair share of building custom WordPress sites, building 100+ WordPress websites from scratch. All of the sites I build are fully manageable by the Client; this means everything from images, text, and custom content types. PS. I hate templates!
You can read more about my development musings on my blog.
Currently, I reside in the perfect city of Los Angeles, California, engaging in freelance opportunities with wonderful Clients and Vendors in the state and abroad.
I'm great at:
- Ruby on Rails
- Amazon S3 / Cloudront
- UX Design
I love working with:
- Ruby on Rails
I love these tools:
- Sublime Text
- Google Chrome
- Mac OSX
If you build it, they will come.
Here are some of the challenging, exciting, and
beautiful projects I've had the pleasure of building.
And here are a few nice things people have had to say.
Andrew is a talented developer with a strong technical background and the ability to quickly identify the right solution to a tough challenge. His willingness to dive into new areas and learn quickly made it enjoyable to work together.Doug Whitney, Napkin Labs
Andrew Martin can do design and development better than most but his most valuable traits are his responsiveness, clarity and quality of work.George Morris, Imulus
I’ve been in this business a long time and have had the pleasure of working with lots of talented designers & programmers.
It wasn’t until we (LSE) were introduced to Believe Labs that we found a one stop-shop for everything design & programming. I can’t imagine working with anyone other than these guys–they are the best, and they are now stuck with us, forever!Leigh Sullivan, Leigh Sullivan Enterprises
Andrew is an exceptional developer with fabulous technical problem solving skills; the most complex concepts become simple solutions in his hands. He has a great knack for hearing and communicating the heart of a company/client, and it’s a painless process when he is involved. An innate ability to ‘become’ part of the team, while efficiently and joyfully driving a project toward completion, make Andrew an absolute delight to work with.Amy McKelvey, Rejuvila
I have with worked with Andrew on various web development projects over the past couple years. He is easily one of the most talented web developers I have ever met. If there is a problem he has never encountered, he’ll find a solution. If the deadline is tight, he’ll make it work. Any future web development work I need will hopefully have Andrew at the helm.Adam Swietek, Kroeschell, Inc.
Andrew, among other things is a Web Development Wunderkind. Not sure how, but he manages to keep a level head when stuck in the middle between very exacting designers and very demanding clients like us.

We are psyched to have worked with him and look forward to keeping the relationship going as our needs evolve.John Bachman, Big Red F
I have used Andrew Martin for sometime with my website needs. I have recently had him make me a new website with a new logo. The site is very user friendly, and many of my clients have commented on how attractive the site is and how easy it is to use. One thing that makes it easy for me, is that I can make changes on my site by myself—I am not a savvy computer person, so this is a big plus for me. I would highly recommend using Andrew’s services–I am very happy!Joann Martin, Avante Cosmetic
Andrew is a highly skilled front end developer and very knowledgeable about the latest in CSS and HTML best practices. He has been instrumental in assisting and training our team to adopt new, much improved front end technologies.Juli Duffer, Active Interest Media
Andrew always has a great attitude and a great work ethic. Easy to coach and eager to learn, but also very smart and capable. If he doesn’t know the answer to a problem he will proactively search out the solution, and always follows up on his tasks in a timely manner. His sales performance reflected his work ethic and thoughtful approach to the business.Dave Young, IndieClick
We’ve had a blast working with Andrew. We’ve used his services on several projects and will hire him again without question. Andrew is very bright and personable and simply “gets” the tech required to do website theming. I’ve had him train other team members because of his level of skill and ability to communicate clearly.Steve LeClair, Active Interest Media
Through my experience, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with a variety of experienced web developers – with Andrew easily standing out as one of the best. Having hired Andrew for a variety of projects and project types, I continue to be blown away by the swift turnaround of above-satisfactory deliverables that come to fruition as a result of every engagement. His attention to detail, approach to execution and level of diligence are next-to-none, and a rarity today. If you have the opportunity to work with Andrew, first, consider yourself fortunate, then… take it.Cole Winans, Syneticus
I highly recommend Andrew Martin and everyone at Believe Labs for website development. We were in need of a new refreshing look to our website and Andrew and his colleagues delivered right on the money. We gave him a very basic model of what we were interested and he was able to craft a website that is beyond our expectations – Thank you Andrew!Stuart Nielson, Colorado Analytical Lab
