Sunjae Lee was born and raised in Massachusetts, where he began his studies in saxophone and martial arts at the Rivers Music School in Weston and Metrowest Taekwon Do in Marlboro, respectively. He majored in chemistry at the University of Rochester while continuing his studies in music at the nearby Eastman School of Music. After working as a chemical engineer for 3 years after graduation, he decided his calling was in holistic medicine, an area in which he could combine all of his interests. 6 years later, he graduated from the National College of Natural Medicine with a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and a Masters of Oriental Medicine.
