Lavallette-Seaside Shorebeat was founded by award-winning journalist Daniel Nee, a lifelong barrier island resident who was also the founding editor of Brick Patch and Sr. Field Editor for Patch.com in Ocean County. He created Shorebeat as a new platform to deliver the news and community information Jersey Shore locals and visitors care about most, without any distractions or fluff.

Daniel especially enjoys reporting on government, politics, as well as boating, fishing and coastal issues. He holds a B.A. in Political Science from Monmouth University and an M.A. in Public Policy, also from Monmouth. He has also attended a Rutgers University seminar on municipal budgeting policies and sits on the Stakeholder Advisory Board of the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium.

We hope you enjoy the site, and we welcome your feedback and suggestions on how to make Lavallette-Seaside Shorebeat the very best it can be. Daniel welcomes your e-mails or calls any time:
