Lee wrote his first program at age 10. It was in Basic for DOS. While he was intrigued, computers were not all that exciting in 1980. After serving in the United States Army as a truck driver in Iraq during Desert Storm, Lee came home and started taking night classes at the local technical college. At that point, he began to see a pattern. All his past jobs had brought him in contact with computers in some way, and it was usually his favorite part of the job. Thus, the programmer in him was reborn.
