Due to Linda’s Taxi driving we’ve known of one-other since 2004 and started dating November 2007, got engage 26th December 2008 then married on the 19th September 2009 at Catalyst Church.

Together we are excited about our roll in the Ipswich Community for QDN (Queenslanders with Disability Network) and Every Australian Counts, as we believe with our background knowledge plus working with other agencies in the Ipswich area, we can assist in making Ipswich a place where people with disabilities want to come to Live, Work, Rest and Play!

Under Disability Community Awareness in our ambassador roles with Every Australian Counts, First2Care, Hireup plus Queenslanders with Disability Network, we both continue to “Speak up to drive change for the better”, by Peter taking on a part-time Community Engagement role with OnSide NDIS, helping families and their participants get the most out of their NDIS National Disability Insurance Scheme plans.
