#WeAreArity Wednesday: Tony LaMarca
When my friend asks me what it is that I do again, I say…
At Arity, I help drivers and insurance companies understand risk.
In your own words, what is Arity?
A new kind of company focused on gathering and leveraging data to provide our partners with insights that can help make transportation safer.
My favorite mode of transportation is…
I just want to know why we don’t have flying cars yet.
On a Saturday afternoon, you can find me…
Either working on a guitar or building an electronics project with my son.
If you could volunteer for any cause, what would it be? Why?
Working in a Soup Kitchen or Food Pantry. I’ve participated in helping at both through opportunities with my church. It’s a very conflicting experience, you know you’re helping which is great but it also helps me to see how fortunate I am.
Most people don’t know …
I am a hot sauce aficionado. For pretty much every holiday (birthday, Father’s Day, etc.) I receive a new bottle of a hot sauce I’ve never tried before.
The theme song of my life is…
Talk to your rideshare driver or silent ride?
Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?
Not for a long time. I don’t like the concept of giving up control.
Favorite innovation pioneer?
Benjamin Franklin! He was a selfless innovator who thought about advancing society and not just himself.
