I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. I went straight through to law school from the University of South Carolina. I am the co-founder and current president of the Entrepreneurial Law Association dedicated to providing law students opportunities to work with startup ideas and newly founded companies. Last summer I worked for Caudle & Spears in Charlotte and will be returning to work for them in September 2015. I enjoy golf, travel, innovation, and music festivals.
Many of us
who have been following the events unfolding in Ukraine for the past several
weeks have experienced emotions ranging from apathy to horror. Regardless of
the position of the rest of the international community, the Kremlin now says
Ukraine’s Crimea region as a part of Russia. Many Ukrainians, including
Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, are understandably outraged, calling the
contrived annexation "a robbery on an international scale." Others throughout the
world, including many Americans, are still asking questions akin to, “why does
this matter?” To understand why it matters, we must attempt to understand the
motivations of the autocrat pulling the strings, Vladimir Putin.
