"Creative story telling through a constant state of discovery & evolution has always been a goal of mine."

Born in North Carolina, started his career right out of high school with George Lucas in Japan. The George Lucas Super Live Adventure was the worlds first Hi-tech, 25 million dollar live show celebrating the 20 year anniversary to Lucas Films.

After two decades of being behind the lens as an 2nd unit director Lee found himself in another country where a situation with homeless children brought forth a life changing moment and became the inspiration for CATCHING FIREFLIES, his film debut as writer/director.

"Telling stories through the action side of motion pictures has led my career to work with top writer/directors in the business which has in turn given me the knowledge to begin my own path as a writer and director.


Currently, "Catching Fireflies," gains momentum in the 2015 festival circuit with multiple wins and selections.
