Memorial Day Flowers Video 2017
It’s a huge honor for me to work with my amazing colleagues at TD Bank on this Memorial Day video story, featuring three other colleagues – two veterans and one mother/daughter/niece of those who served. I am proud: TD is not only a Great Place to Work, it is also the Greatest Place to Do Great Work (haven’t yet registered for this trade mark:).
On Memorial Day, we remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for the liberties we enjoy today. TD Bank is a proud supporter of the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation, sending 35,000 roses to cemeteries from Maine to Florida. Hear from our own Employees why Memorial Day matters, to us all!

A work in progress, an ocean of inspiration still to be filled:
Here’s one page to view all the Super Bowl LI’s commercials without needing to keep hitting a play button (may have to go through other ads tho). Here’s my favorite, the most powerful storytelling in one short video, wordless and (and making 8+ million YouTube viewers and counting) speechless:
