This interview has it all. Improvements for the county, a way forward in the retail market for Kent, a feel good story, a hobby of cleaning and even a new type of food: A Lamb Cake.
You must be wondering who this mystery guest is? Let's find out.
This is Chris James Eves, 22 from our very own county town, Maidstone.
His hobbies include regular visits to the gym, listening to music and driving. As I took a generous gulp of my orange juice (No drinking on the job!), Chris managed to slip in that he has two irregular hobbies.
Openly he admitting to me that he is a cleaning freak and that he likes to write lists, but when he proceeded to tell me that he writes lists in more detail than normal, my curiosity took over.
"I don't write normal lists all the time. Sometimes I write lists about writing lists!" A very unique approach but if it works for him, who am I to judge?
Chris is happy in Kent but does finds some particular areas are better than others.
"I live in Maidstone because of my family. It has changed a lot over the years and so have I. I now find Canterbury, Whitstable and Tunbridge Wells are places that I visit quite often and are of a better standard than some other places in Kent. But it is like anywhere you go, there are places that are nice and places that are not as nice."
Chris' favourite eating spot in Kent is Canterbury's Deeson's.
"Deeson's is unique English style food. Have you ever heard of a Lamb Cake?" I have now!
"I highly recommend the Lamb Cake for meat fans, it's well presented and tastes fantastic."
Being a big lamb fan myself, I think I'll be taking a trip to Deeson's quite soon! Thanks for the hint Chris.
Although Chris feels that Kent has changed and that his affections are not as strong towards the county, he has come up with a feasible solution to make Kent a great place.
"I think the way forward for Kent is for us to enstate more independent businesses."
"I think businesses that are 'one of a kind' produce better quality products, have better customer service and take more effort in their work."
"They know that it is important to keep customers coming back because that is what keeps them in business. Multi national corporations can just close up and move to another location and keep going with their other stores but they don't seem to have the personal touch that an independent business does."
"Basically, Kent should give a lot more time to these types of businesses because in the long run, it will benefit the county."
Chris' explained that his movie and TV must sees were too many to count on one hand.
"I like watching cartoons like Family Guy and American Dad. If I was to sit here and list movies we would be here forever."
As all my interviewees have found out so far, and as the future ones will find out, the whole idea of me talking to them is to find out a little bit more about the people that make up Kent. Not just their hobbies and interests but more about them as people.
Chris had a great story which shows where hard work and perseverance can get you when you think you have taken a wrong turn.
"I had a rough time during my final year of A Levels, I felt that the guidance I received from my teachers was not the best they could have given me."
"My grades reflexed this and I was, in truthfulness, quite upset."
"I managed to get into a good university and I worked hard to get a degree in Mathematics. The feeling was so good, to know I had accomplished this but I wanted to undertake a Masters to show that I could do more."
Chris said that his aim was not to be a top student but merely just to work hard and get the best grades he could.
"I exceeded my own expectations and excelled in my Masters. I achieved a distinction which completely shocked me."
But when his university asked him to become a professional Statistician, Chris knew what he had done was nothing short of brillant.
"I am now going to be working as a professional Statistician on huge projects and I can't wait."
It just shows that good, hard working people can go from a really bad prospect and turn it on a flip side and achieve much more than they expected. Top stuff!
It's been a really good interview but as you know each week that random question of mine creeps in.
If you had to watch three movies for the rest of your life, with no substitutes, which ones would they be?
"I am a true Bond fan and I think the series has benefited from the two new, Daniel Craig movies: Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, so they would be my first two choices"
"And probably my third has to be Iron Man because he is the ultimate superhero for me!"
I was pleased with Chris' three choices, I thought I could watch at least two of those for the rest of my life.
So I packed up my notebook, my questions and my camera and concluded my interview.
I think Chris had some great points to make about improvements for Kent and I must say, that Lamb Cake is still playing on my mind so he has found that all important independent business a new customer.
