Please join me in welcoming Matt Segal to the Wetpixel moderation team!
Matt, a Southern California native and resident, learned to dive in the Cayman Islands after a knee injury at age 15. He began underwater photography (and photography in general) in late 2003 and has pursued it since, spending much of his time underwater at the local Channel Islands as well as areas in the South Pacific and Caribbean. He is a participating member of the Los Angeles Underwater Photographic Society (LAUPS), and currently shoots a Canon 20D in an Ikelite housing, with two Ikelite DS-125 strobes. Segal is a National Merit Scholar and is majoring in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Southern California on a full scholarship.
Matt is also by far the youngest moderator in the Wetpixel volunteer staff. We are all envious of his youth and are looking forward to the energy he will bring to the team!
