The People of oneninefive: Kevin Ellis

 

 

 

The People of ONF is a content series that showcases the interesting, creative and all-round cool people that make up oneninefive.

Let’s get to know Kev..

When did you join MTT? January 2020

What’s one thing that surprised you about working at MTT? It’s cheesy but the individual talent of everyone in the company.

What led you to this industry? I didn’t choose leads, leads chose me.

What’s your hobby or passion project outside of work? I love getting injured.

 

What’s your favorite way to unwind after a busy day? Although it seems like a luxury that’s so far away right now you can’t beat a cold beer in a beer garden as the sun sets (If my better half reads this it’s obviously spending time with my family).

What did you want to be when you were younger? A surgeon!

How are you adjusting to the working from home lifestyle? Any tips on how to stay productive? In a bitter turn of irony, ever since we’ve been on lock down the sun has been beaming. Starting the day with a coffee in the garden has been a perfect kick off to the day.

What trend do you hope makes a comeback? Platform shoes… I wouldn’t mind being a few inches taller.

What’s a trip that changed you, and why? Is this question related to a holiday or a downfall?

 

Quick Fire Q’s

What are you watching on Netflix right now? On BBC iPlayer I’m currently watching Noughts & Crosses which is a story set in a pre/post apartheid regime but where the racial roles we’re used to have been swapped.

What’s one song that you’re embarrassed to admit you like? I’m very embarrassed to say one of the first cassettes I ever bought was Billie Piper – Because We Want To…

 

What’s one song that isn’t played enough? Mary Clark – Take Me I’m Yours. Whether you do or don’t know it, find the 7 minute version on YouTube now, crank it up and get your hips and shoulders moving!

Sand or Snow? Which would you prefer to holiday? I’ve never had a snow holiday. Give me a snorkel, some flippers, a warm sea and I’m off.

How do you like your eggs? Scrambled, as long as they’re not over cooked and dry.

One meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? It’s boring but probably steak, rare please.
