Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Lee cut his teeth on Star Frontiers at age seven and never looked back. After graduating from the University of Georgia, he moved to the frozen north of New York City, where after killing a robotic polar bear as part of an initiation ritual he worked at DC Comics for a time. (You’d be surprised how many robotic polar bears have to be killed every day in the comics industry.) He’s worked on over 20 gaming products for companies such as AEG, Bastion Press, Holistic Design, and Louis Porter Jr. designs, and all he had to kill for those assignments was an emperor penguin. Now Lee lives in Seattle, Washington, where he works for Paizo as the Goblinworks Lead Game Designer.
