Lee was born and raised on the Cape and has spent most of his life working in theatre. Lee is also an accomplished pastry chef following in the footsteps of his father, a baker by trade. He spent 7 years at the restaurant Juniper in Wellesley where his bourbon and caramel date cake is still receiving raves. Lee’s interest in church architecture began as a child traveling New England with his family researching and chronicling the carvings of his great uncle Johannes Kirchmeyer, America’s foremost neo-gothic wood carver and founding member of the Boston Society of Arts and Crafts. Kirchmeyer’s works adorn sacred spaces from the churches of New England, New York and Ontario to West Point.
