Lee was born in Warren, Ohio, but he's been a Southern California resident since age nine. His parents encouraged him to play an instrument, and at age six he chose the piano. Lee, a good student and "Math Whiz," attended private schools from middle school until he was accepted to the prestigious Oberlin School of Music in Ohio. After two years of study, Lee decided to explore other creative outlets aside from music. When he sampled the theatre department, he says, "The light bulbs clicked on." He transferred his interests from music to drama and received a BA from Oberlin. He returned home to Southern California to pursue his career as an actor.
Lee took jobs in retail and worked at a coffee house by day while acting in local theatre at night. While co-starring in such productions as the controversial AIDS polemic, 'Queen of Angels,' the revival of Charles Ludlam's 'Camille,' and 'Letters to a Student Revolutionary' at East/West Players, the actor discovered how art can make lasting statements and generate debate about important issues. This experience shaped his passion for significant and controversial work. Lee currently resides in Los Angeles.
