Hi Sam and everyone,

This is great! I did have a concern about the Doodle, I chose two days that
I'm available for next week, but, of course, that could change. I'd like to
be able to participate in a regular meeting, preferably during the week
(not a weekend). So I just wanted to express that - I could change it after
the first meeting I just have calendar that fills up and I'd love to get
something locked and set on my calendar to meet with everyone.

I'll keep following things. I'll send an updated bio (same headshot being
used) soon.

Thanks for the update!
