He has also covered local government, businesses, events and breaking news for The Press of Atlantic City and Micromedia Publications. He has served as publisher and editor of Jersey Shore Fishing Magazine, which is distributed to more than 10,000 anglers between Manasquan Inlet and Ocean City each issue.
Daniel is an avid boater and angler who keeps his boat in Manahawkin, and can often be seen cruising Barnegat Bay, hunting for fluke and striped bass or cruising somewhere a few miles off the beach drifting over an artificial reef.
He knows how much our local Patch communities care about what’s happening in town, and he’s committed to continuing the coverage that keeps you up to date on Lacey issues.
Above all, he knows Patch works best when our communities join in the local conversation.
