Dwight Wynne played at UCI while pursuing a graduate degree in biomedical engineering. Prior to this he attended UCLA and served as club president for two years.

From 2000-2003, playing for Capistrano Valley High School, Dwight attended four HSNCTs. His highest team finish was T-5th riding Matthew Sherman's coattails in 2001. He was an All-Star in 2002 and in 2003, he was the tournament's leading scorer and led his team to a T-8th finish.

Dwight founded socalquizbowl.org in 2010 as a way to centralize news and discussion of Southern California tournaments after being frustrated with several different attempts at a regional mailing list. He was awarded the 2013 Cooper Award jointly with Chris Chiego for their outreach work in Southern California.

During his playing days, Dwight was known for his ability to score lots of points and lead his team to respectable finishes despite not having good knowledge of any subject. Dwight is also known for repeatedly coming up with bad ideas, most of which are in direct violation of Weiner's Law #1. In addition, it is believed that Dwight holds the highest words-per-post average on the hsquizbowl forums.

Dwight is an ACF Emeritus member (having edited 2009 Nationals, 2010 Regionals, and 2011 Regionals) and currently edits math calculation for HSAPQ.
