Graduating from Glyndŵr University in 2010, Pete spent a lot of his time brewing tea, crewing and live sound engineering at Wrexham’s local venue Central Station. He also became heavily involved with the community radio station; Calon FM presenting The Metalheadz show, racking up 250,000 views for the accompanying YouTube channel.

Then in the same year he was offered a position at Nuclear Blast Records as promotions manager for the UK, London office overseeing Radio & TV campaigns for Hatebreed, Testament and Sylosis. After a couple of years of working in both press and radio, it was in 2013 that Pete decided to fully pursue his love of radio and joined the then newly formed national DAB station TeamRock Radio as a presenter and producer, progressing to Head of Music until December 2016. 

Inspired by Carl Sagan, Pete launched his own podcast Wonder Junkie, where he delves deeper into various subject areas, featuring interviews with the likes of ESA Astrophysicist Dr. Matt Taylor, Emmy Award winning actor Mandy Patinkin and curator at London's Imperial War Museum; Matt Brosnan. 

In 2017, Pete along with his former colleagues at TeamRock Radio (Moose, Dewsbury & Engineer Mark) launched the crowd funded Primordial Radio; a brand new UK radio station for the rock and metal community. Initially starting out as a podcast, they went on to setup a crowdfunding campaign via Seedrs where 853 investors backed the project to the tune of £150,000 by the end of the campaign.
