Ketera Procurement Software
Web development and graphic design: Day to day webmaster duties included updating the entire Ketera site, news and press releases, etc.
Notable accomplishment: In response to a spam-bot attack on their contact forms which had Ketera blacklisted by Google and other search engines, I developed hack-resistant php and salesforce-integrated registration forms with domain checking and rigorous fields validation, and got them off the black list :o)
I also created original graphics, logos, and flash for the Ketera site, plus marketing print collateral, data sheets, white papers, etc.
