Meet the Team is our monthly chance to introduce you to the fabulous, quirky, talented people who work at Vidyard, using our favorite medium — video! For this episode, we caught up with Greg Bowen, Systems Analyst at Vidyard. Learn why he didn’t become a police officer, and the hardest thing about playing the bagpipes by watching this video!

What Didn’t Make the Cut

Greg shared a lot more than just how to look cool playing the bagpipes, so here’s a few more of his answers:

What is your favourite video on the internet right now?

My favourite YouTube video of all time that I will never get tired of is “Hey ya ya” by He Man and the Masters of the Universe:

Never gets old for me! But currently my favourite video is the video of my pipe band competing at the Cambridge Highland games. I could watch it dozens of times. Spoiler alert – we won!

What’s your favorite place to eat in Kitchener, and why?

I have a few! The first one is probably Ace Shawarma. The have the best shawarma poutine, and granted I have never really tried any other shawarma poutines, but it’s just fantastic. Next place for meals would be Gilt. Everything is amazing, but the bacon wrapped dates are especially great.

Lastly, for cocktails, the Grand Trunk Saloon. You cannot go wrong they have so many different kinds of drinks whether you want bold, sweet, or other flavours. And the should food is phenomenal!
