Thanks so much everyone for joining us here today. Let's, let's get Beth and Allison and Philip to introduce themselves. Oh, and also, but just for colleagues who are blind, or have low vision is helpful to describe what we look like. So just think of me, I'm like a mid-age Asian man. I just got a haircut yesterday and I'm wearing glasses.

Also pervasive aura of like vegan sexiness, it's, it's undeniable. So yeah, Beth and Allison can quick introduction and then Philip.
