Founder and editor Dave Dean has been a geek for as long as he can remember. His first computer was a ZX Spectrum, complete with rubber keys and a tape drive that worked half the time at best. That thing was a work of art.

He managed computer networks and tech support teams for 15 years before the desire to travel took over in 2011. That’s when he sold whatever wouldn’t fit into a backpack and moved to Thailand to start life as a full-time digital nomad.

He’s been running this site alongside a small team of fellow experts ever since, navigating the ever-changing world of travel technology. With decades in the industry and 12+ years of working outside the confines of a traditional office, he’s a leading expert in the tech side of remote work.

Originally from New Zealand, Dave now splits his time between Australia, the UK, and anywhere he can get to with a pack on his back. If it has decent Wi-Fi and a great view, so much the better.

He’s been interviewed and quoted on travel tech, remote work, and digital nomadism in major publications from the New York Times to the BBC, and can be contacted here.

Jordan Nottrodt works remotely, from home or abroad, using whatever technology she can find to make the job quicker and easier. When she’s not working or spending time outside, she’s watching movies and shows to contribute to her goal of creating the world’s largest database of online drinking games.

Lazar Stojadinovic is a fitness enthusiast and ex-gaming addict, an all-round geek who loves computers more than people, a cat lover with a legal degree, and a professional maker of failed plans.

Oh, and he’s a tech writer as well.

Lauren Juliff is a physicist turned digital nomad who has been traveling and working her way around the world for over a decade. She’s the clumsy member of the team: if there’s a camera to be dropped, a Kindle to be stood on, or a laptop to pour a drink over, she’ll be the one to do it.

She’s used and abused more tech than most, and knows from personal experience exactly how well gear stands up to the hardships of life on the road. If it can survive a few months in Lauren’s luggage, it’ll survive just about anything!
