A couple that rides together stays together!


We met as teenagers during our first year of high school and grew up together on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. After both graduating from Queensland University of Technology, we moved interstate & then overseas to advance our careers in the education and hospitality sectors. We are happily married for more than 25 years with two wonderful children who are both students at The University of Queensland.


Last year we repatriated to Australia having spent the past twenty years living abroad in China & India. We are avid cyclists with a total of eight bikes (four apiece) in our collective herd. Whether it’s a weekend coffee cruise down the coastal strip, a track session on the velodrome, a road ride through the hinterland or a multi-day gravel adventure…we are always up for a ride. Our motto is “a couple that rides together, stays together”!


Sharing a love of adventure, we are passionate about wellbeing and contributing to the community. From Bollywood dancing in Mumbai, cycling & running in Shanghai to Dragon Boat racing in Tianjin, we have been active participants in raising awareness and generating donations for worthy local charitable causes.


On return to our home at Main Beach last year we were seeking opportunities to volunteer in our local community. Having spent many summers together in our youth at Main Beach, we felt compelled to train for and join volunteer surf rescue patrols at Southport Surf Life Saving Club.


We met Claire & Peter Reaburn in our apartment complex. The world is a small place and to our pleasant surprise we shared much in common with long family associations to Southport Surf Life Saving Club, raising awareness for charitable causes and a genuine love of cycling!


Over a coffee with Claire & Peter we learned more about Rare Ovarian Cancer and how Ride 4 Research has assisted to create awareness and much needed funds for research. We were inspired by their story and feel privileged to be part of this special group who are working tirelessly to make a difference in others’ lives. It is an honour for us to join ROCInc Ride 4 Research 2024.
