About Me:I run my own online debating website. Check it out at www.edeb8.com - it has a few things DDO doesn't ;) ELO and rap battle tournament champion on DDO. I helped start a debating club at high school, competed at high school and university level in several national and international tournaments, and hope to settle down a bit now. Send me a challenge and I'll gladly take you on! Don't be dissuaded by my personal stance on various issues as I argue both ways on pretty much all topics. In fact I'm sometimes stronger arguing for the side I disagree with. Not sure how that works but never mind.
Activities:I am a web/software developer. My degree is a bachelor of commerce, majoring in marketing and management. In my spare time I like to read books, play games like chess, compose music, code stuff, and of course debate!
Beliefs:That debate and intelligent discussion is really important for the future of the world. Currently a big advocate of video debating, team debating, improving feedback processes for online debaters and encouraging cultural communication through debate. If you want I'll join your team, video debate you (at reasonable hours NZ time!), and I almost always accept all challenges.
Books:All of my uni textbooks.
Movies:Lord of the Rings. Pretty much our national film. Also, Once Were Warriors. Amazing.
Music:Listening to my own compositions on repeat for hours.
Quotes:Violence never resolves anything
-Genghis Khan

What I am resolved to maintain is this, that there shall be equal justice in representation and in the distribution of land and revenue to every class in New Zealand ... Equal rights to all - equal rights in education, equal rights in taxation, equal rights in representation ... equal rights in every respect.
-Sir George Edward Grey
Sports Teams:Anybody from New Zealand.
TV Shows:I wish I had a TV so I could fill out this section. Having said that, Rainbow Dash is best pony. And I'm not even being sarcastic. Hooves down, she's the best.
