Frazer Lee is not your average surfer. Professional worker by day
and writer/film director/vampire breeder by night, Lee is definitely one
of Yahoo!'s more colourful staffers.
"He's certainly a character," Andy Williams, the head of surfing at
UK & Ireland, says. And Lee, who joined Yahoo! last April, fast carved
himself out as an individual with a particularly healthy interest in the
twilight zone. "I started getting into horror novels when I learnt to

smirked in the face of such normality and opted to dress up as Count
Dreadlockula. "I got paid to jump out and scare the life out of some
poor punter," he reminisces fondly. "He still does," Williams
On joining Yahoo!, Lee decided to introduce himself to his fellow
comrades by penning: "Born in Transylvania in 1371, I spent my formative

bat. Unfortunately, my attempts failed."
Still, Lee managed to find some partners with a suitably ghoulish
interest in horror to form a film production company, Robber Baron
One of their films, On Edge, is your usual bubble gum comedy about a
business man who goes to the dentist without an appointment, wanders off
bored and meets with rather more surgery than he'd intended.
And wouldn't you know it, Doug Bradley, known to horror fans as Pinhead
in the Hellraiser movies, chose to be in the film. Expect more
ghoulishness from Lee coming to a screen near you soon.
