Lee Briggs is a Wake Forest University graduate, born and raised in North Carolina. He has been living in the Bay Area for the past two years and works in the Presidio for Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light and Magic. In the summer of 2007 he bicycled across the country with his college roommate; dipping their back tires in the Atlantic at the Outer Banks of North Carolina and dipping their front tires in the Pacific here in San Francisco, totaling over 3800 miles. Lee is an avid fan of the outdoors and jumps at every opportunity to get outside and ride his bike. He owes the 30for30th idea to his wife Melissa, who suggested it on a whim as something to do in celebrating a 30th birthday. His daughter Matilda also shares an April birthday and will turn one on the 20th.
