I began as a parent LD judge in 2001 and judged over many years. Since 2014, I have coached Public Forum and Speech and am the current Co-Director of Speech and Debate at Cary Academy in North Carolina. In debate (LD/PF) I look for clear claims, evidence and links to logical, clear impacts. I flow each round and look for you to bring your arguments through the round, tell me the clash and how I should weigh the round. Speed speaking isn't real world and I won't flow what I can't understand. Asking for evidence for common sense issues won't count either. I look for logical links to impact, clear organized argumentation that tells me how to vote. You can use flow jargon, but tell me why. You want me to flow across the round? cross apply? for instance, tell me why. Have fun and enjoy the activity!

For Speech events. I am always enthusiastic about great cutting and a good story in interp. In platform events, great organization is invaluable. That gets you to the tournament. During competition, show me you believe what you are telling me!
