#WeAreArity Wednesday: Alex Duran
When my friend asks me what it is that I do again, I say…
At Arity, I help facilitate the sale and value proposition of Arity’s telematics services, primarily as an insurance expert. I usually get people to ask more questions when I say “telematics”, which is why I position it that way!
In your own words, what is Arity?
Arity is a technology company that uses data and analytics to drive changes in transportation behaviors for the better.
My favorite mode of transportation is…
A golf cart.
On a Saturday afternoon, you can find me…
Coaching my kids, writing music, or creating some food masterpieces.
If you could volunteer for any cause, what would it be? Why?
Having 3 sons has completely changed my perspective of the world. My volunteer work would be focused on anti-bullying and self-confidence in children.
Most people don’t know…
I am obsessed with the science behind cooking.
The theme song of my life is…
Talk to your rideshare driver or silent ride?
Both! I used to be a silent rider, but after working with telematics I do so far more now.
Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?
Yes, but I would need a closed course validation of the vehicle before hitting the open road! I’ve always been risk-averse but have realized that the times are changing.
Favorite innovation pioneer?
Les Paul. Music is a foundation in my life, and he really helped set the stage for modern rock and heavy metal.
