failure to comply with such requirements, or (iii) any obligation or liability
of the undersigned for profit disgorgement under Section 16(b) of the Exchange

responsibility for compliance with the undersigned's obligations under the
Exchange Act, including without limitation the reporting requirements under
Section 16 of the Exchange Act.

        The undersigned hereby gives and grants each of the foregoing
attorneys-in-fact full power and authority to do and perform all and every act
and thing whatsoever necessary or appropriate to be done in the exercise of the
rights and powers granted by this Power of Attorney as fully to all intents and
purposes as the undersigned might or could do personally, hereby ratifying all
that each such attorney-in-fact, shall lawfully do or cause to be done for and
on behalf of the undersigned by virtue of this Power of Attorney.

        This Power of Attorney shall remain in full force and effect until
revoked by the undersigned in a signed writing delivered to each such attorney-

        IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned has caused this Power of Attorney
to be executed as of this 9th day of February 2022.
