When you’re not Arcwebing, what are you up to?
I am working on my ventures, while researching the next place to travel.
If Arcweb could build a product for any company, what would it be and for who?

Who’s your tech idol?
Mark Cuban. I admire his ability to understand the technology sector, while creating a business out of an idea.

What’s your favorite place to place to hang out in the city?
At any restaurant that serves delicious foods.
What’s your favorite tech product at the moment and why?

What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
The furthest I have been from home would be my time in Asia.
You’re a relatively new Arcweber. What do you think of your experience so far?
So far the experience has been great. Every day you learn or work on something new, while applying the skills that you have learned.
Favorite innovation of all time?
The Gameboy, I wish I still had mine.
Favorite lunch spot in Old City?
This is a tough one, as there are so many good places, but European Republic is winning over my wallet.
What do you tell your parents you do for a living?
I tell them that I assist the business development team at a software innovation company.
Which fellow Arcweber would you trade places with and why?
I would trade places with a developer. I used to code and find writing algorithms to be exciting.
What was your first job?
My first job was a dishwasher at a restaurant.
You get to read one book for the rest of your life. What is it?
This is a tough question, but any book by Kurt Vonnegut.
In your opinion, what’s the number one reason why a business would hire Arcweb?
We are lean, we are efficient, and we build products to improve businesses.
And that’s Wesley Yuen!
