He has spent over two decades developing novel technologies to enable ocean research and exploration. Lee also has extensive field experience, logging over 1,000 hours as a manned-submersible pilot and leading over 50 seafaring expeditions all around the world.

A Philadelphia native, Lee developed his love for the oceans at an early age, spending time along the southern New Jersey shore. At university, he combined his fascination with science with his passion for the water, obtaining bachelor’s and master’s degrees in ocean engineering from Florida Institute of Technology.

In 2015, Lee’s entrepreneurial drive and extensive experience in design and deployment of underwater vehicles and optics led him to partner with his longtime colleague, Dirk Fieberg. Together, they founded Arctic Rays, a small, energetic, high-tech start-up company based on Florida’s Space Coast that designs and manufactures cutting-edge underwater lighting and imaging systems. Lee lives with his family in Melbourne Beach, Florida.
