Hi,

I debated for three years at Cedar Park High School in Austin, Texas and graduated in 2017. I qualified to the TOC twice, making it to octos my senior year. I also qualified to TFA state three times. I take a pretty open view on debate. I read predominantly framework but I also did K/Larp debate up until my senior year. I will evaluate almost all arguments (not those that are morally repugnant i.e. racism, sexism, homophobic, transphobic etc.) given a reason to do so.

Most of this stuff is my presumptions, but that being said they are just defaults. If I have to vote on a default of mine I will be frustrated.

Framework:

I find unique, nuanced framework debates very interesting. I think that framing needs to be actually justified, but I am very open to what counts as a framework, especially when it comes to arguments that are usually viewed as "K" arguments.

Theory:

I default competing interpretations and no RVIs.

T:

Same as theory, but I presume drop the debater.

Ks:

Great! Please don't assume I know super dense post-modern jargon though. Just explain things and I will be fine.


LARP:

Yes

Tricks:

Definitely not the biggest fan, but I won't completely disregard them. If a spike has a warrant* and is dropped, I'll vote on it if it is extended. However, If I don't understand your really incomprehensible permissibility trigger I won’t vote on it.

General stuff:

I'd love it if you'd email or flash the speeches to me and your opponent.

Do not cut cards, but if you do I expect you to mark them as you are reading.

Speed is fine. I'll yell clear.

Please just BE NICE! It just really isn't that hard to not be super rude :( Also, please don't be offensive. I won't have tolerance for anything that is racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic etc.
