D. Wayne Lee, P.E. offers over 37 years of proven experience in various aspects of the industry. A graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology, he studied under the late Dr. W. Marshall Leach, Jr., School of Electrical Engineering and performed extensive studies under Dr. Eugene T. Patronis, Jr., Professor Emeritus, School of Physics. Georgia Tech studies included audio engineering, acoustical engineering, electronic instrumentation, loudspeaker design, fiber optics and noise reduction techniques.
Industry experience started in 1981 with Western Electric, Co. where Mr. Lee was a Field Engineer supporting submarine sonar systems and designing test sets for the Navy's ballistic submarine fleet. Responsibilities included field support of the existing analog system and prototype testing of the all-digital system under development at Bell Laboratories. Then a move to Altec Lansing, Corp. as a Senior Development Engineer brought the establishment of the Electronics R. & D. Department in Oklahoma City. As the group leader Mr. Lee was involved in new product development and existing product support. Projects included development of power amplifiers, automatic microphone mixers, equalizers, and signal processors.
Starting in 1986, Mr. Lee spent nearly eight years as the Engineering Manager for Baker Audio/Telecom, an established design/build contracting firm in Atlanta that specializes in acoustics, sound systems and audio visual systems. There he pioneered computer assisted sound system design and acoustical measurements utilizing the Techron TEF Analyzer. System performance was predicted prior to installation and field verified with site measurements after installation. This background in design/build contracting offers practical experience many consultants may not be able to provide. In 1993, Mr. Lee founded Lee Sound Design, Inc.
