Judging qualifications:
I was an LD debater in High School. I'm currently 3 years out, and have served as a judge for all three years, working in TFA, NFL and UIL tournaments in the greater Houston area and occasionally elsewhere. I have judged at 44 separate tournaments since 2009, and have judging experience in all speech and debate events. I've judged countless numbers of LD, CX, and Extempt rounds, as well as Poetry to a slightly lesser degree, so I feel very confident in my abilities to judge those events.

Judging Philosophy

CX

Rounds judged: 50
Judging approach: policy maker
Policy priority: Issues
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: I vote heavily off of offense/defense and stock issues. The most important thing for me in the round is clash, and drops are heavily frowned upon. I'm ok with you running whatever - topicality, critiques, etc. I also tend to look at impact calculus. As for speed, speed with clarity is acceptable. I can keep up with spreading, as long as there is clarity.

LD

Rounds judged: 50
Approach: Issues
Philosophy:
I vote heavily off of offense/defense. The most important thing for me in the round is clash, and drops are heavily frowned upon. Second to that would be the value/criterion debate. I rarely vote on theory. As for speed, speed with clarity is acceptable. I can keep up with spreading, as long as there is clarity.
