Sometimes you have that one movie you can watch more than once or twice or three times. Lee’s is Men of Honor, featuring fellow South African, Charlize Theron!

You may have seen him on the rugby field.

Lee has an extensive rugby background, having captained the Pretoria Boys’ High first team in his high school days, and the Blue Bulls U19 team. He’s also played for the Sharks U21 and Sharks XV teams, and was captain of TUKS’ first team.

He’s more than just a pretty face!

He studied Marketing Management through UNISA, as well as Health & Fitness through the Zululand Sports Academy. As if that weren’t enough, he even found time to give back by establishing a non-profit organisation.

He sounds perfect.

When asked to describe himself in five words, he said: ambitious, hardworking, caring, humble, loyal.

And others think so too.

If other people had to describe him, he says they’d mention his sense of humour, his happy-go-lucky approach, and his hardworking nature.
