Aron "Teo" Lee, Founder

DEILAB™ founder Aron "Teo" Lee graduated from Hampton University Virginia with a degree in Psychology and dreams of a profession in therapy and education. In a simple twist of fate, he would spend the next 20 years in corporate sales, management and business development while his dreams were left in hibernation. In anticipation of a layoff in 2010, Lee began a career transition aligned with the dreams he had left on hold. Since then he has amassed thousands of hours teaching about design, engineering and innovation. Lee has conducted hundreds of after school programs, summer camps and professional development workshops in public and private schools, universities, corporations and non-profit organizations.

 

Lee has a multidisciplinary background in the arts, education, design, engineering, business development and management. He has owned several small businesses and a consultancy. His work has taken him around the country.  

One of our missions is to change the world through the power of a person’s imagination.
— Aron Lee

Children are rich with creative horsepower and I want to help push it in a direction towards innovation."  

"It is equally rewarding to watch the inner child emerge from an adult shell. I actually believe the adults have more fun than the kids!" 

Some of his clients include the Calvert Foundation, Georgetown University's School of Continuing Education, Georgetown Day School, the YMCA of Greater Washington DC, the Christina Seix Academy, NJ, and the Elliot School, Boston Ma.

Lee is happily married to his college sweetheart and they are the proud parents of two wonderfully entertaining and thoughtful children.
