Robert Charles Lee is a retired scientist, with a former career in risk analysis, decision analysis, and risk management. His work ranged from patient safety to radioactive waste to asteroid impacts to mountaineering risk.
He was born in North Carolina, USA and lived there for over twenty years, but has since lived and worked in Alaska, Oregon, Washington, New Mexico, and Alberta, Canada. He currently lives in Colorado with his wife Linda and their two dogs.
Robert and Linda and other partners climbed hundreds of technical mountain, rock, ice, mixed, and desert canyon routes over three decades. Robert also soloed many technical routes. Robert and Linda are now retired from technical climbing. They have also scrambled many nontechnical peaks and hiked thousands of miles in several countries, and skied many miles of vertical feet at resorts and in the backcountry.
Robert is also an avid amateur photographer, largely of outdoor subjects. He is a musician who plays hand, stick, and mallet percussion; and an amateur sound engineer and producer. He was trying to learn to relax in retirement, but then he discovered non-technical writing. In addition to his memoir, he wrote a poetry collection, and is working on short stories and a novel.
His academic degrees include a BS in Botany, a BS in Science Education, an MS in Environmental Health, a Certificate in Integrated Business Administration, and an ABD ("all but dissertation") in a Toxicology PhD program. He is also an ordained Minister and has a Doctorate of Metaphysics from the Universal Life Church.
