Judging qualifications:
Throughout high school I observed the events very closely and always tried to improve myself as a speaker. This led me to have a very critical eye on all things speech related. I'm up to date on the latest UIL rules, and topics for debate. I have also competed at several state meets, and watched state rounds, so I know what a good team, and individual truly is.

Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: Stock Issues
Policy priority: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Evidence philosophy: Quality of evidence is more important than quantity of evidence
Paradigm: I am definitely a stock issues judge. I do not agree with running disads,kritic killers and counterplans. Now with that being said if these are run properly I will fairly judge the debate, and would never discourage individual debate style. I want to see a team that has communication skills and team work. What some people seem to forget is that debate is as much of a speaking event as persuasive or informative speaking. Enunciation and diction are major factors, if I cannot understand what is going on then I will not hesitate to vote in that manor. Overall I want to see debaters with passion, who not only understand their own evidence, but work to ensure that the judge is following as well.
