I am also the owner of Windy City Detector Sales & Rental, a metal detecting retail dealer in Chicago since 1985.

I am very excited about being a part of Chris Turner's expanding Ring Finder team, and welcome the opportunity to help people find those precious pieces of jewelry that mean so much to them and that they thought they would never see again.

I love this job and I look forward to helping you find what you thought was lost forever!
