Judging qualifications:
I have competed in Speech and Debate throughout high school and continue to do so in college. I've also been a clinician for the past two years for several high schools. I've had the opportunity to expand my knowledge on CX debate by judging it regularly, attending workshops, and by taking several classes at West Texas A&M that revolve around debate.

Judging Philosophy

CX

Rounds judged: 4
Judging approach: tabula rosa
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: equal
Paradigm: I’m a pretty open minded judge and I like to enter a debate with a clear head. I enjoy CX periods because they allow me to take a mental ‘break’ from my thoughts and listen to what the debaters are picking up from each other. I will usually vote for quality over quantity in the debate, I need debaters to show how and why their argument is the most important.

LD

Rounds judged: 4
Approach: Equal
Philosophy:
I’m a pretty open minded judge and I like to enter a debate with a clear head. LD is all about value/criterion and how well the debaters articulate that and have evidence for it across the board.
