I debated national circuit LD for Oakwood School (North Hollywood), graduating in 2015. In 2015, I could understand spreading well and had a strong grasp of every circuit LD argument, but I haven't been very involved with debate since then.

I already sucked at flowing while I was debating, and I'm probably much worse at it now, so please pause between arguments, signpost excessively, and do not spread theory interps. If you go too fast, I'll call out "slow," but there's still a chance I'll miss some stuff.

As long as you signpost a lot, slow down a bit, and explain the meaning/implications of dense philosophies, I can likely follow any framework/theory/K/weighing you want to do. Again, I'm familiar with all these arguments from my circuit experience, but I just can't keep up with top speed anymore. Also, particularly if you run theory or K's, be warned that it's entirely possible that I vote on some widespread debate norm from 2015 that doesn't exist now, or that I'm not aware of some norm that became widespread after 2015.

Feel free to ask any questions before the round starts about my judging preferences, experience, or anything else.
