My wife and United Airlines

Between January and March, I was a pretty lonely guy. My wife Megan, moved to Ojai for a bit to work on Jamie Caliri's latest United Airlines commercial, Heart.

Thankfully, it isn't lame and I guess my lonely nights were somewhat justified.

Congrats babe! I'm only a nepotist for you;)

Hi, Shannon.
I had to comment... A bunch of us at Disney were talking about how great all of United ads have been, and this one in particular rec'vd honorable mention. Pls tell your wife how completely impressed many of us in the industry are and congrats to the entire group. It is motivating to see art/design used so successfully!
