In Policy Debate, I default policy maker. I will vote on topicality if the Aff is not at least reasonably topical, and the Neg wins the argument. I have a pretty high threshold for voting on kritiks. Very few policy decisions based solely on the views of dead philosophers have been successful, and my policy maker lense is difficult for me to put down here. I'm willing to listen to a kritik, but if I don't find the rhetoric compelling, I have no problem ignoring it.

In Lincoln Douglas, I will focus first on the Value and Criterion debates. I care little for policy implications here unless the topic specifically calls for it. If the topic does call for it, I will be sad. Debate accordingly.

My political views trend liberal with a smattering of libertarian thrown in. But do I try hard to be aware of my own biases, and counter them when evaluating policies and arguments.

I will intervene on the ballot if I think you are being rude, sexist, racist, or deplorable in any other fashion. I've sat with too many kids in tears because of how they were treated in a round. I will not accept it, nor will I enable it. Play nice.

I am not a particularly fast flow; if you go too fast you will lose me. If I don't write it down, you didn't say it. My suggestion is that you start at 3/4 speed and watch my non-verbals. I will not tell you to slow down, but if you think I should be writing and I am not, you have probably lost me.
