Previous experience: Policy debater for Maine East High School for two years.
Current speech, IPDA, and BP/Worlds debater at Oakton Community College.
Heavily policy oriented— if you’re going to do any type of K work please speak to me as if I don’t know what’s going on. Avoid buzzwords and jargon unless you will give proper explanation and the framework/role of the ballot should be clearly defined giving me valid explanations as to why I should prefer your interpretation. Please have developed SPECIFIC links to the plan if you’re running a K on the Neg and your overviews for Ks (be it an affirmative or negative position) should be talked through not spread through. Make me understand—don’t just throw words at me. TLDR; if it’s a K talk to me like I’m lay.
Counterplans and Disads are my cup of tea. I will vote neg on theory if it’s against a shifty process or conditions counter plan (I absolutely despise conditions CP). Also don’t go for condo unless there are specific instances of abuse and you plan on speaking a whole 5min is your 2AR about it I don’t wanna hear that speech, you don’t wanna give that speech, and your opponent probably will think your not cool by the end of it.
I value clarity over speed—if you have clear arguments with in depth explanation I’ll lean towards you (at least in terms of speaker points) rather than having an abundance of unclear arguments.
Please be flowing, try line by line the best you can, avoid card clipping, and just be a decent human being in terms of interactions with one another. Okay EMPHASIS ON SIDE POSTING AND LINE BY LINE!!! I become absolutely flustered and frustrated when side posting isn’t done. If you’re not telling me to switch flows there’s a higher chance due to my misflowing the argument will be awash.
if you’re actually reading this: show me a meme, a cute puppy picture, or something weeb related by the end of the round or before it I’ll give you an extra 0.1 speaker point ðŸ˜šâœŒðŸ½
