I'm Dave Dean, a former corporate IT worker turned full-time traveler and writer. Here on About.com's Travel Tech and Gear, you'll find everything you need to know about technology and gear for travel, whether it's a two week vacation to Aruba or a year-long trip around the world. I bring you detailed reviews, tips and advice, doing the research and legwork so that you don't have to.


After traveling and working in corporate IT around the globe for fifteen years, in 2011 I left the office behind to work from the road full time. I'm a freelance writer, founded and run a travel blog and a travel technology site, and published "Hammocks and Hard Drives: The Tech Guide for Digital Nomads".
