About Me: Not Available
Judge Philosophy: I debated Policy debate for three years for the University of Vermont. I later worked as Program Director for the DC Urban Debate League. I am currently a lawyer, with a focus on environmental law.

Despite being familiar with the use of speed and spreading, I am suspect of it when not used correctly. Over-reliance on pointing out dropped arguments due to spreading, reading your entire speech (i.e. not just evidence/cards) at 350 words per minutes, especially if the debater lacks speaking drills and the corresponding clarity, tends to be NOT very persuasive to me.

Having said that, as a debater you should employ strategies that you find fit your style, whatever that may be. I will have an open mind to any style/strategy.

Personal disclosure: I am passionate about Animal rights, and the Taiji Dolphin Hunt.

In the end, I will vote for whoever does the better job debating, not necessarily for whoever is right; not for the person who delineates arguments in line with my personal views.
