Speech and Debate Team Head Coach at College Prep School of America.
I am a former college LD'er, but spent more time in speech doing Extemp in high school and college.  


I am a traditional LD judge who believes in topicality and strong argumentation with contention clash and strong crystallization.  Translation: This isn't Congress or Policy. 


Do not spread. I need to hear and flow your arguments in order to score.  If I can't understand you, then I can't score you.  Do not heavily rely on esoteric counterplans or kritques.  Please do not do theory unless its absolutely required.


Beyond this, I am pretty simple.  Argue well, follow basic decorum of the debate and make sure I can follow you.  SIgn posting is your friend and mine.
