Andrew Colombi is a 38 year old tech guy from way back. At 12 years old, he wanted to play a computer game, but lacked the RAM to load it. After digging into the internal configuration to delay the load of peripherals, he was hooked on computers and eventually, coding. Outside of tech, he is picking back up learning piano, and really enjoys biking. He mentioned he just got a new gravel bike, which is a street bike with a front suspension.
In the past, Andrew frequently worked with data that was private, with other users not having access. So, he had to create fake data, for multiple different projects. When he tried to do this, it took him much longer than anticipated, and it was incredibly valuable for multiple uses (stress testing and demos to name a few). This was key to eventually building a real tool for this, and starting a new adventure.
