Paul Rostorp // FullStack Developer

I am a passionate, entrepreneurial, self-taught (since age 11) developer who has a knack for getting around problems by finding creative solutions. I love a new challenge and thrive when building a product from the ground up. I'm a quick learner and can adapt quickly to new projects. In a team, you'll find me to be enthusiastic and sociable, with a lot to bring to the table. I have a strong experience in advertising technology and B2C products.

In my free time, I love listening to music, biking, DIY and of course, coding.
I am a native French & English & Swedish speaker and I understand most Danish.
