Early life

Lee was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to immigrants from Taiwan. She was raised primarily in Waterford, Connecticut in the same house featured in her film Red Doors. Actress Kathy Shao-Lin Lee is her younger sister.

Lee was ranked first in her senior year at Waterford High School. She attended Harvard University, where she received an A.B. in biochemistry from Harvard University. She had previously began an MBA but did not complete the program. After graduation, Lee worked for the management consulting firm McKinsey & Company.


Lee apprenticed on Gangs of New York after its director Martin Scorsese saw Lee's first short film, The Big Dish: Tiananmen '89. Lee's next short film was Educated (2001), which was shown in over 30 festivals around the world.

Lee wrote and directed the feature film Red Doors. It won the Best Narrative Feature Award in the NY, NY Competition at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival. It also won the Special Jury Award for Ensemble Acting at CineVegas, and the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Award for Screenwriting at Outfest.

Lee has served as juror for both the Sundance Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival.
