SUPPORT WORKER - MATTHEW GAUNSON

Matthew Gaunson - KB Infinity Support

Hi, my name is Matt Gaunson – Disability Support Worker for KB Infinity Support.

 

I have been living on the Sunshine coast for 10 years, I live with my partner and young son in Mooloolaba.

 

Over the last 3 years I have been privileged to combine my lifelong passion of music with working in disability support.

I have operated several musical group participation sessions with groups of up to 15 people, all actively participating with either drumming, hand percussion, guitar, singing or other musical instruments.

I also currently teach drums, guitar and keyboards in the Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) at Mooloolaba state school one day per week. (full band set up)

From the first day of working in disability support using music I knew that this was what I needed to do, I get an amazing feeling from seeing my clients enjoy our music sessions and feel they’ve benefited greatly, weather from learning a few notes on a guitar, getting out some energy on my electric drums or from the social and participation aspect.

I have also provided care for clients without the use of music over the past 6 months.

SUPPORT WORKER - PAUL MARTIN

Paul Martin - KB Infinity Support

Hi, my name is Paul Martin and I live with my fabulous partner Kath who I met in 2004. Together we have four adult children over 30 and one grandson. We reside in the beautiful Cooroy hinterland with our three furry friends who think they're people but are actually sausage dogs. 

It only feels like yesterday when I loved to the Sunny Coast in September 1985 and for many years I was actively involved in the music industry which incidentally is where I met Kath. During that time I attained a Diploma in Music and Music Business as well as Cert IV in Training & Assessment. I've also been grateful for the opportunity and privilege to travel to some memorable destinations around planet earth. I'm still drawn to the ocean and nature, love the garden, guitars and amplifiers.

Fast forward to the present and around 18 months ago I gained employment with the great crew from KB Infinity Support and joined the team as a Disability Support Worker. The job description is challenging, rewarding and often fun working with and being involved in the every day lives of the participants. In addition, it's humbling and enlightening assisting people with diverse abilities to allow their unique personalities and talents to shine bright. 

SUPPORT WORKER - PETER TUPPACK

Pete Tuppack - KB Infinity Support

Hi I'm Pete and I've been a lifestyle facilitator since 2017 with some travel in between to hike the Appalachian Trail. Starting to support people with different abilities opened a new world for me as it's such a connected community filled with great people here on the Coast. I work across two organisations and it's also nice to see the cooperation within this industry. I feel very fortunate to be in such an excellent role - it's a real privilege to be in the lives of those I support.

In my free time I enjoy being in nature, hiking, camping and exploring. I'm interested in sustainability and permaculture. I'm a keen reader, love card/board games and have just bought a set of electronic drums to learn without annoying my neighbours' too badly. 

During supports, I like to keep busy and it's great to be able to get, explore the coast, kick some goals and stay active with such amazing people.
