I would like to introduce you to one of our new team members! Meet Alfonso Quant, Partner Integrations Specialist. Alfonso, was kind enough to take some time to answer some of my questions so we all could get to know him better.
Tell me about where you grew up? Do you have siblings?
I was originally born in Managua, Nicaragua, but my family and I moved to Sacramento, CA when I was still an infant. I pretty much grew up in Sacramento all my life. I have 2 younger sisters who both work in San Francisco as well. (Nicaragua -very cool!)
What are your hobbies, and what do you do for fun?
My hobbies include video games, fitness, cooking, traveling, the outdoors and sporting events. In my spare time, I enjoy working out, hiking, cooking and playing video games.
Favorite sports teams and why?
I am a huge Sacramento Kings fan. As a kid I grew up going to all the games with my dad and have been a fan all my life. My first sporting event I ever attended was a Kings game. I also love the SF Giants and 49ers.
What are your favorite tv shows/movies and why?
Although I don't have much spare time for TV or movies, I really enjoy watching Game of Thrones. There's not much to explain as to why. All I can say is that "Winter is coming". (Best show ever!)
If you could go out to dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
If i could go to dinner with anyone in the world, it would be my amazing girlfriend, because there's no one else I would rather stuff my face and have some laughs with. (Great answer!)
If you were given 2 weeks off on an all expenses paid vacation, where would you go and why?
I would go to Tahiti because of its remote beauty and clear waters.
If you won the lottery today, what's the first thing you would buy or do?
If I won the lottery, the first thing I would do is buy my parents, sisters and myself each a home. I would then donate a portion to fund cancer research and invest the rest to live off of the interest/income.
If you could go back in time to any day in history or time period, what would it be and why?
I would go back in time to when dinosaurs existed to see what they actually looked like. But only long enough to see and not be eaten. (You're the first one to ever give this answer in the blog series :)
Who are your favorite musicians, and what is your favorite type of music?
It's hard for me to say who my favorite musician is, but I can say that John Legend and Usher are two of my favorites. I enjoy all types of music, however I most often listen to Country, Latin and HipHop.
Interesting facts about yourself?
Back in 2012 I competed in 5 different natural bodybuilding competitions. I did them to challenge myself to be in the best shape of my life, and it was fun.
What brought you to CoverHound?
I came to CoverHound because I believe in the innovation the company is bringing to the insurance industry. I asked many big picture questions before joining the team, and I liked everything I heard. I know the company has a great amount of potential, and I am excited to be a part of the team.
Alfonso, we are so happy you joined the team! Thanks for taking the time to chat with me!
