A graduate of Binghamton University, originally from New York City and New Jersey, Lee now
resides with his family in Minneapolis. When he isn't helping his clients win more deals at the
prices they want, you will find him throwing batting practice to his sons, training for his next
powerlifting meet, and goofing around with his dogs.
