Lee is, today a famed name in Singapore.

He has worked on his portfolio on from TV, print commercials, hairshows, seminars workshops and local artistes like Michelle Chia, Joanne Peh, Quan Yi Fong, Mark Lee, Bryan Wong and more.

Lee has opened salons in Singapore and Malaysia, and the Monsoon Hair Academy in January 2007 to coach trainees who wish to establish a career in the hairdressing and hairstyling.

Besides working as a hair stylist, Lee also did live-stream sales in China.

In September 2021, Lee started a live-stream company, Mdada, with business partners and friends Pornsak and Michelle Chia to sell products on Facebook Live.
