I am a parent of an LD debater. This is my third year judging LD debate. I judged varsity LD on several invitational tournaments and NCFL/NSDA nationals.

If you're a progressive LD debate, I will be better for me if you can run you case in traditional LD way.

I consider myself a tabula rasa judge, and will vote on anything if given a proper rationale and justification. However, please do not make sexist, racist, or ablest arguments I will drop you.

I take judging seriously and most time showing a poker face so don’t try to get feedback from me during the round. You can expect that I will have a solid understanding of the subject(s) being debated.

What I won't have is a pre-determined way of thinking based on my individual beliefs on any topic.

Preferences:

Speed: It is ok to go faster than normal, but please no spreading. If you aren't clear, then I can't understand your arguments. And if I can't understand your arguments, I can't vote for you. Vary speed, tone, volume, or something else to differentiate between tags and cards. Emphasize transitions, present important analysis, signposts, etc.

Plans: I am ok with plans, just have solvency.

Counterplans: I am ok with counterplans, but please don't run abusive counterplans, I won't vote on them. Pics are okay, but not word pics.

Kritiks: I will not vote off a Kritik.

Philosophy: I like value/value criterion debates.

Theory: No theory.

Topicality: Only argue about topicality if your opponent is being blatantly non-topical.

Decorum: Please be polite and respectful towards your opponent. Do not be overly aggressive.
