Daniel Lee has been a professional editor since 2002. After spending one season at reality-TV ground zero Bunim/Murray Productions, he proceeded to make a name for himself in movie advertising, working for and alongside the biggest legends in the industry. Four years at Skip Chaisson's cutting edge boutique Skip Film was followed by ten at the highly prestigious Mark Woollen & Associates. It was during his year-and-a-half at the late Chris Park's Project X/AV that his skill set grew to include producing, and now Dan is a proud part of the team at industry mainstay Aspect.
Dan has won both Clio and Hollywood Reporter Key Art Awards, as well as a number of Golden Trailer awards, and has been nominated for both many times over. His work has been seen on network and cable television, aired during the Superbowl, and shown in theaters both domestically and internationally.
He is also the writer/editor/director of the feature film Journeyman, as well as a plethora of short films, including Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite, which was featured on IFC's MediaLab in 2005 and was invited to play as part of that year's L'Uovo di Napoli film festival in Italy.
A lifelong writer, Dan was a California state finalist for the 1999 National Poetry Slam. He has written several screenplays, dozens of short stories, countless poems, the libretto for an opera, and his first novel, After Death, recently won First Place in the Nerdist Sci-Fi Contest and is forthcoming from Inkshares.
Additionally, he has worked as a puppeteer at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater in Downtown LA, as a camera operator for Fox Television on a World Strongman Competition in Santo Domingo, and as a production coordinator for the popular fitness/yoga company Gaiam.
Dan graduated Santa Clara University in 2001 as a member of Lambda Pi Eta, the National Communication Honor Society, and was the recipient of the Justin T. McCarthy Award for excellence in oratory and personal expression.
Endlessly creative and ambitious, Dan is always working on several projects at once, and is constantly on the lookout for new and exciting adventures.
