Augusto Vincenzo's Bio

My name is Augusto Vincenzo and I am 52 years old! Married 26 years with 2 children.

Meu nome é Augusto Vincenzo, tenho 52 anos. Casado a 26 anos e tenho 2 filhos.

I love my family, my friends, metal detecting, longboard Surfing and the good old Rock n Roll !

Amo minha família, amigos, metal detecting, surf de pranchão e o velho e bom Rock n Roll.

I have been metal detecting for about a year now and it has quickly become a passion, besides, I have always loved the excitement of finding lost things.

Venho detectando metal como hobby a pelo menos um ano e isso logo se tornou uma paixão, além do que sempre gostei da emoção de encontrar coisas perdidas.

Chris Turner’s Ring Finders is exactly the kind of thing I have always wanted to do: give people a second chance to find what they thought was lost forever.

O serviço criado por Chris Turner é exatamente o tipo de atividade da qual eu sempre quis fazer parte: dar às pessoas uma segunda chance de encontrar o que elas pensavam estar perdido para sempre.
