Hello. 

Competitive background: 3 yrs HS Parli, qualified for Parli TOC before. 1 yr college Parli, 29th at NPTE.

Preferences: I will be as objective as possible in round, and prefer that you debate in the style that most suits you. I like a good K debate or util debate. I am open to voting on framework/theory arguments; just warrant them/debate them well. 

If there is no weighing on any time frame/probability/magnitude layer, I will default to strength of link. But you all should weigh to begin with. 

Delivery and speaks: I'm fine with most speed. I'm not the best with flowing, so please signpost/be clear about where arguments are. I will say clear when necessary. I will give high speaks for good strategy, innovative arguments, and well-placed puns. If the puns are obviously forced though, I may lower your speaks.

Ask me about anything else you want before the round!
