Web fame spreads

By Free Press staff   The recognition keeps pouring in for 12-year-old Website wonder Keith Peiris of London. He has won several industry honours for Cyberteks Design, his Website design company. But his latest recognition is among children his own age.

Owl magazine, aimed at those age nine and up, has profiled him in its Wonder Kid feature in the December issue.

Keith, who has been the subject of several Free Press articles, built his own Web page two years ago and became so skilled with Macromedia, he was called up on stage by Macromedia chief executive officer Robert Burgess at an industry conference.

Since then, Cyberteks was named one of the top 50 web development and service companies in Canada and its designs are frequent finalists in industry competitions.

Cyberteks now employs two full-time and four part-time workers and has won contracts with companies such as Kewl Threads hockey wear and Interep, the largest independent national radio sales representation firm in the United States.

"Most people don't know my age when I go to work on their Website," Keith is quoted saying in the Owl article. "And by the time they find out, they don't care."
