Locating what you're searching for involves not only skill and experience in using tools such as metal detectors, but it also means doing your homework. This is where I excel. Using such things as geological clues, historical documents, and metal detecting equipment I can travel across the United States and even World recovering items on land and in shallow water. 

 I've gained years of experience while hunting for artifacts and learning effective researching and hunting methods from my own hunts and other expert artifact hunters. I don't just hunt for lost artifacts. I aim to find them. I have located artifacts for Archaeologists, National Park Services, Government, Historic Museums and Private Employers . Artifact hunting is not just a dream for me. It is my business and passion.
