Daniel Lee has been a professional editor since 2001. After one season at 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 prestigious Mark Woollen & Associates and a year-and-a-half at the late Chris Park's Project X/AV. Dan is currently a proud part of the team at industry mainstay Aspect and a member of the Motion Picture Editors Guild. His work over the years has won both Clio and Hollywood Reporter Key Art Awards, as well as multiple Golden Trailer awards.

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 California state finalist for the 1999 National Poetry Slam, Dan has written countless poems, dozens of short stories, the libretto for an opera, and his first novel, After Death, won First Place in the 2017 Nerdist Sci-Fi Contest and is forthcoming from Inkshares.
