Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 15+
Judging approach: policy maker
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: I'm more of an analytical type of judge. If it can work and you can prove to me that it can and will, then you are the winner. I really am about communication and evidence to back up a claim. If I don't think you'll be able to do the plan or you prove that the plan is not effective then you will win.


Rounds judged: 15+
Approach: Equal
I really am about evidence and structure of case. If you can have both then the best for it. I'm more of a flow judge and I know that the value supercedes throughout the round. I really enjoy a value/value criteria clash and if you can prove that yours outweighs the opponents then you win the round. I'm a huge fan on voters and I will vote for you due to that. If debaters are rude regardless of style I will not vote for them. I do believe in philosphy through a round as well. I like theories that work and ideas that are logical.
