Hi, I’m Lee, Managing Director and Co-Founder of The Hook.

Since a young age, when Lego was still a thing, I have always been creative and had a passion for art & design.

After leaving school I wanted to further my knowledge of design and completed a bachelor’s degree at Liverpool John Moores University in Product Design & 3D Modelling – at the time, I made the wise decision, in my humble opinion, to not move out into halls, continue to be the bane of my poor Mum’s life and work on my customer service skills at my local Halfords.

Following a few years in the industry, and in my very own home (much to my mother’s delight), I grew tired of working for companies whose moral compass seemed to be firmly set on monotonous grind of making money; places where the potential for community outreach were endless, but where my place existed firmly on an office chair solely committed to my 9-5 role. The words of one particular previous employer have always stuck with me though – desperate to do more I approached them, asking for the autonomy to affect change, their response? ‘Lee, you just do the pretty stuff on the computer, stick to that.’

I’m sure you can guess the outcome of that interaction. It was high time I focused my energy in the places I could affect change and benefit the community I served. So here I am, working with like-minded individuals, on a journey that manages to inspire me everyday.

Welcome to The Hook.
