Pete Agate

I hail from Crawley. West Sussex, but have lived in Northern Ireland for the past 11 years.

I’m a proud father to 3 lovely children, living with my partner of 11 years. My main hobby is photography, but I also like to read and am a fairly frequent video gamer. I have been listening to metal and rock for as long as I can remember, and I’m not tied to one particular style. I love it all! I’m keen, easy going and like to think of myself as a social person. I love the sun (not vampiristic at all) and hate the cold – I wear cargo shorts pretty much all the time and love all my band tee shirts.
