The Gear Diary Team


Zek grew up hoping someday to have gadgets as cool as those on Star Trek. While they’re still waiting for a transporter beam to be created, the fact that video chatting and tablet computing are no longer science fiction makes them insanely happy.

If it’s remotely fitness or health-related, Zek is game to try it out. They also read voraciously and are grateful for the invention of ebooks, as they were rapidly running out of space for both books and basic necessities like food. When they’re not working, they spend as much time as possible outside hiking or fishing with their son.

They live in NJ and want to remind everyone there is more to the state than the Turnpike. And no, the entire shore is not what they showed on MTV.

Zek has been a Gear Diary editor since 2010.


Travis Ehrlich has been a high school teacher and coach in a small South Texas town for eleven years.  His love for gadgets began at a very early age, and he has been a cross between a jock and a geek for most of his life.  He has two boys and a wonderful wife who lets him be a gadget freak.


Travis has a Master of Education Administration from Lamar University.  He is a fairly new Mac convert and has drunk the whole pitcher of kool-aid!  He is also an avid guitar player and turns handmade pens whenever he can find a spare moment.

From the moment he got his hands on a Nintendo controller at the age of 5, he knew that technology would be a big part of his life.  He uses both Apple computers and PCs regularly and enjoys building his own Home Theater PCs, which combines his love of movies and TV with his love of gadgets.  Perry is a fan of all iDevices, although he has a lot of experience with Android.  His love of video games, which began with the NES, has continued all the way to the Xbox 360 and now the Xbox One, and he loves to keep up with the latest and greatest games.

When he’s not playing with or writing about gadgets, Perry is a big sports fan, especially following the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Eagles.  He also inherited a love of cooking and baking from his mother.  Perry married his wife, Stacey, in July of 2013 and could not be happier that she also shares his love of technology.
