#WeAreArity Wednesday: Randy French
When Mom asks me what it is that I do again, I say…
At Arity, I collaborate with product and engineering teams to understand the implementation of their services and work with our customers to troubleshoot integration issues in order to help them reach their goals.
In your own words, what is Arity?
Arity is a telematics company building smarter data-driven solutions to better determine risk and make transportation safer.
My favorite mode of transportation is…
Trains. I’ve always been fascinated by the different types of engines and tracks. Plus, my favorite toy as a child was a model train set.
On a Saturday afternoon, you can find me…
Yelling at a T.V set while watching a Liverpool FC (soccer team in England) game at home or a bar.
If you could volunteer for any cause, what would it be? Why?
Promoting literacy in the least fortunate parts of the world because acquiring the basic math and reading skills so many of us take for granted, determines whether a person spends their whole life in chronic poverty.
Most people don’t know…
I moved to America 11 years ago and I’m originally from Ghana.
The theme song of my life is…
Walk It Talk It by Migos and Drake
Talk to your rideshare driver or silent ride?
Talk to my rideshare driver. They often are immigrants like myself and it’s just another opportunity to learn about parts of the world I may never visit.
Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?
Yes, I would! Driving stresses me out and I would rather spend that time doing something else, like reading or even sleeping.
Favorite innovation pioneer?
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez because her Green New Deal policy proposal is the kind of ambitious plan we are going to need in order to even begin to scratch the surface of combating the dire effects of climate change.
