Martin Carlin


Hello, my name is Martin Carlin and I am a Web Developer and bass player from Motherwell in Scotland.

I would describe myself as an all-round, full-stack web developer specialising in PHP, Laravel, MySQL, JavaScript / jQuery, CSS / SASS / LESS and various APIs I've used over the years.

I am a big fan of Laravel and the ecosystem surrounding it.

I enjoy the problem solving aspects of web development and learning new technologies, as well as creating nice UIs with pleasant user experiences, especially when it's an abstraction to a particularly challenging feature.

In my spare time I play bass in a four-piece wedding band based in Motherwell called 4Play and have been doing so for the last ten years or so.

You can probably tell I'm a bit of a Marvel fan from the header image(s). I always struggle to come up with an image to show at the top of my personal websites and think it looks bare without one, so I think I've finally found something that works for me.

This Ghost theme was developed using the Bulma Flexbox framework.
