Paradigm Statement
Last changed 25 March 2022 6:29 AM CDT

I debated competitively in LD, CX, and Student Congress in high school and also competed in CEDA policy debate in college. In addition, I enjoyed success in domestic extemp and original oratory. I'm a huge fan of competitive speech and debate with deep appreciation for the analytical and public speaking skills honed through participation.

Paradigm: I’m open-mined and love good clash. I can reasonably hang with speed as long as an attempt is made to enunciate; however, my preference is for effective communication and analysis over spread. I want a clean flow and strong signposting. Please make voting issues clear. In CX, I love the stock issues, compelling advantages with solvency, and great, applicable (not generic) disads.

Regardless of the debate type, my favorite rounds are those that include more thinking and direct clash and less generic speed reading. Dropped issues won’t win a ballot, so pull arguments through that you want to be voting issues and point out opponent drops. It's totally okay to concede arguments you are losing -- you don't have to win 100% of the flow to win the round. I'm a fan of compelling persuasion, smart arguments, and a willingness to have some fun.
