Ben Freda has more than 10 years of experience in web technology. For four years, Ben worked at PICnet, Inc., a firm that specializes in providing Joomla services to nonprofit organizations. After PICnet closed its New York office in 2009, Ben started Ben Freda Consulting, a web consulting shop focusing on solutions using the Joomla, Drupal, and Wordpress content management systems.
Before PICnet, Ben, having attended Columbia Law School with little forethought about how much a real-life legal career might differ from what he'd seen on television shows like Law and Order, worked for two years as a big-firm lawyer in New York City. Prior to that career diversion, he worked at AutoWhiz.com, a web startup.
