He was born in Ottawa around 1956[1] to William and Doreen Croswell Lee, and he attended the Earl of March Secondary School in Ottawa.[2][3] He quarterbacked the Carleton Ravens football team for four years, graduating with a journalism degree. He then worked as a news anchor at CFCF radio in Montreal.
