Born and raised in Cardiff Wales, Lee's experience in the entertainment industry began in 1992 at Panama Joes Nightclub in Cardiff as Floor Supervisor. With a capacity of 2000 people Panama Joes was at that time the largest nightclub in Wales. Although already familiar with casinos and the games on offer since the age of 18, it was during his employment at Panama Joes that Lee visited the casino more frequently as a form of entertainment outside of club hours.
In March of 1995 Lee left Wales to work for the worlds largest cruise line as a Casino Cashier. At the end of a six month contract he returned to Wales and trained to be a Casino Dealer at the Park Casino in Cardiff. On completion of his training and obtaining his gaming licence Lee returned to the cruise ships to continue his casino career. During his eight years working and travelling on the cruise ships Lee worked as a Cashier, Technician, Dealer and Casino Supervisor. He visited the world's most famous casino resorts in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, San Juan Puerto Rico, Canada, Nassau Bahamas and St Maarten.
