For as long as he can remember, Lee has spent his winters on the snow and his summers on the beach. Influenced by his art teacher/snowboard instructor/lifeguard parents, he developed into an enthusiastic and highly skilled surfer and snowboarder at a very young age, eventually competing at a professional level in both.
Lee graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelors Degree in Biology and earned his Masters in Science Education at Stony Brook University.
He has 14 years experience as an ocean lifeguard and is a volunteer for East Hampton Ocean Rescue. Lee works as a tutor, a cook, a snowboard instructor, and a model. He splits his time between Brooklyn and Montauk.
