Debate student and Entrepreneurship major at Point Loma Nazarene
AJ Crawford is currently pursuing a B.S. in Business Management and Entrepreneurship at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. Before transferring to Point Loma, AJ won numerous awards, including silver and gold medals in both IPDA and Parliamentary debate. When he isn't competing, AJ loves sharing his knowledge and experience with other debaters both as a teammate and a judge. He can often be found helping newer debaters prepare cases and has spent many weekends judging high school and college debate tournaments. Before college, AJ spent four years competing in mock trial, with two years as team captain helping mentor younger high school students. It was then that he discovered his passion for teaching and coaching others in debate and public speaking. Outside of debate, AJ ran a painting company to help pay his way through college and is passionate about entrepreneurship and business. He is looking forward to coaching with Capital Public Debate and creating lasting positive experiences for those around him.
