Judging qualifications:
I have competed in both extemporaneous speaking and CX debate extensively. I fully understand all rules and regulations especially those that differ from TFA and NFL. I know what to look for in a speaker and a debater. I'm big on proffessionalism and take everyone in a round in account to my choosing of a winner. Also I leave my biases at home.

Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: policy maker
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: Evidence can only get you so far in a round. I look for a debater who can clearly explain all arguements they present and rebute. Also I'm not real big on arguements that just "fill" up space. Arguements must have weight in a round and debaters must emphasize that weight.
