About Me: I'm the Director of Debate at the University of Rhode Island, with experience teaching and evaluating many different types of debating styles and formats
Judge Philosophy: I believe that debate is about effective advocacy, not mastery of a narrow technical set of skills. So, while I'
ve had a lot of experience with different forms of debate (I was a policy debater and coach for years, run a British Parliamentary program now and work with the Rhode Island Urban Debate League), I think it is best for debaters to presume that I don't know these things and to speak to me as a citizen. I prefer non-interventionist approaches to judging--I will err on the side of the debater who tells me how THEY want me to evaluate the round rather than apply my own criteria. I am open to many different types of arguments. I think that evidenced based argumentation is important, but that ethos and pathos matter too. I approach judging from the perspective of an educator, and am not just interested in rendering a verdict, but providing advice and constructive criticism for the purposes of improvement. I like to see debaters have fun and be bold.
