After a lifetime spent in his native New York, Eric Paul Lee now resides in beautiful, tropical, Miami, Florida.
Born in Brooklyn and raised in Coney Island, Eric often wandered the Boardwalk in his childhood. He frequently wasted his allowance at the now demolished Steeplechase Park and the other dated, dowdy, and declining amusements that defined Coney Island and much of traditional society back then.
The traditional was still in back then. And the traditional, like Coney Island, had seen its glory days, its heyday, long passed. But the new hadn’t arrived yet, the old was just fading. And so the forms still had to be obeyed. And with that, Eric’s parents obeyed those forms, and Eric was dispatched to college in Upstate New York, to return to Brooklyn some four years later.
Upon graduation from college, Eric bounced from job to job until the graphic arts caught his creative eye and a new career began. With his first graphics production position under his belt, Eric moved in to Manhattan some two years later, never to live in Brooklyn again.
Success built on success as corporate stints in California brought about even greater successes leading to Eric’s eventual New York City return and the opening of his own graphics agency in Manhattan. That enterprise ran successfully for more than twenty years.
Now out of industry entirely, Eric is happy to enjoy the perpetual Florida sun and write.
