Hi, I'm John Rizvi, the patent professor. And here we are at our annual holiday party. And we're doing something a little bit different this year, instead of gift exchange, we're going to do a gratitude exchange. So for all of you look at the person sitting across from you, these are the co workers and team members that have helped me this year. So amazing. And I'd like to you do say the first thing that comes to mind about them.
So Jason, this is a super nice opportunity for me to thank you honestly, from my heart for these years working with you, you're incredibly smart, very good, professional and a terrific person and always in a good mood, always willing to work together to solve problems always, I don't know, just excellent team worker, I cannot be happier. And thank you for being my friend as well.
For Hiram, one of the new employees that we have for 2019. He does wonderful drafting. It's so wonderful to have someone in office that can do those illustrations for us. And we can get the returns for the customers fast. He's precise, he's precision, he does everything nice. His numbers, and his drawings are almost as beautiful as mine.
I want to give gratitude to Noah for all that he's taught me and my time with the firm, and helping me get on board and work with clients and help people realize their ideas and make them come without become a reality. So no one gets my number one pick for gratitude this year.
I'm very grateful to have worked with John for approximately seven years. John, I'm grateful for the opportunity to come in every day and work with an amazing team. And I'm also grateful for the flexibility of being a part timer. And congratulations on your new achievement with your own building and Merry Christmas to all. Thank you
