Justin Auciello

A lifelong resident of South Seaside Park, Justin Auciello is a surfer, urban planner, journalist and traveler. He prefers life in boardshorts and bare feet and aims to live the "endless summer," which he somewhat accomplishes by spending time in Puerto Rico each winter, where he lives with the family of his lovely girlfriend, Andreica, and surfs the northwestern coast of the Isla del Encanto. But most of all, Justin's insatiable drive is to keep people informed, whether it is covering a breaking news event on Jersey Shore Hurricane News – a two-way news outlet covering news, traffic and weather that he founded in August 2011 – or simply educating children about rip current safety during a lazy day on the beach.
