Hi everyone and thanks for visiting my About.me page.

Lets go!

If you know me then you'll probably know that online I am mainly known as SingingTurnip. That name came about because when I joined Xbox Live many years ago it was a gamertag that was suggested to me, and it kinda made me smile. So it stayed.

I was born on the 12th August 1982 at the Jessops Hospital, Sheffield, England, UK. My parents are called Tony & Beverley who had another child 2 years later together called Gary.

I live in Whitehaven in Cumbria but before this I spent the maority of my life in Sheffield until I moved to Doncaster where I became a father in 2005 and again in 2008.

In 2010 I separated from my son's mum and despite efforts to see the children the privilege was taken from me. I fought through the courts and stayed at it and she finally allowed me to see them in 2013 In July of that year Charlie was born. Christmas 2013 was the best Christmas I have had in a very longtime. My Other 2 kids, Josh & Seb were allowed to come and stay with us for a week and have been coming here for most of their holidays since.

Still here?

Good! lets carry on :)

I have a website which I regularly update which is all about gaming news and reviews, the link is below.

I have also done a spot of acting recently as "Man in Diner" for a BBC programme called 'The A Word' and that'll be aired from Tuesday 22nd March at 9pm, BBC One.

Since then I auditioned for a part of a character in a student film 'Retribution', I didn't get that part but I still got a main role and you can see the trailer here: https://youtu.be/S9XhcMFj7Dc

The full film is also available via the channel above.
