3rd year Lansing debater, I've mainly debated in tech circuits, but am doing more open debates recently.

In terms of general argument types, I'll listen to and vote on anything except bigoted/exclusionary args.

speed: I've debated tech for a couple years so I'll probably be able to keep up with whatever speed you're comfortable at, that being said, I do prefer clarity on tags for flowing purposes and won't be impressed by people trying to go faster than they can just because. Speak at a speed you can be clear at and always check with the other team's comfortability with speed

DO NOT be unnecessarily aggressive in round- we're here to debate, not attack each other.

I tend to prefer T or K debates but can also enjoy more generic policy rounds.

DAs: Disads are great, try and contextualize the link as much as possible and do a lot of impact calc

Kritiks: I love K debates, but they need to make sense and not be used as a way to confuse the other team. I am partial towards perf con args on the aff and will probably weigh it more heavily than other judges as long as it is warranted out properly and given voters. On the neg contextual links are super important and I like line-by-line after the 1NC.

Counterplans: Honestly I don't really do a lot of intense counterplan debates, so you'll probably have to do a little more explanation on why the cp is net good, but I'll still vote on them.

Topicality: I love good topicality debates, but if it isn't correctly done I'll probably end up disregarding it. Standards and voters are super important. I don't really like reasonability, but if it isn't answered well I'll weigh it.

Overall, just have fun and read what you want.
