A little about Lee
Lee's Cricket Career
Always a precocious talent, Carseldine’s years of agonising back stress fractures and degenerative disc problems forced him into premature retirement. A spinal fusion and complications resulting from a life threatening infection did not stop Lee from learning to walk again and from make a remarkable comeback, a feat that was even recognised by News Corp in the top 20 courageous athletes of 2008. Lee played 132 matches for Queensland and travelled extensively whilst playing professionally in India, England, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, South Africa and Bangladesh.
After completing a double Masters Degree (MBA and Masters of Applied Finance), Lee has started up a number of business activities across multiple industries. In 2014 Lee launched Droneit Group, a company that emanates his passion of creating amazing content for his clients as well as creating opportunities for new operators in the industry through training, ecommerce and consulting services. DG Media was also launched at the same time to assist in creating stunning content through utilizing aerial, videography, photography and post production skills.
Lee joined Agency X as a Director in 2019, assisting to empower athletes to grow their personal brands and seek opportunities away from their chosen sports, additionally providing marketing services within the sports industry. Lee works directly with Agency X Talent athletes to secure commercial opportunites and mentors them so that will mirror the same successes that he has had away from professional sports.
Since retiring from cricket, Lee also assists professional past players in their transition out of the game through working with the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) and the non-profit Bulls Master’s Program.
With his trademark honesty, humour and a fresh approach on life, Lee enjoys taking on many different communication roles, as it comes second nature to him after being heavily featured in the media throughout his cricket years. Lee has experience with sports commentating, breakfast radio and guest speaking; he has been able to tell his incredible stories of defeat and triumph that has made him the man he is today. Lee worked with Channel 7’s lifestyle program Queensland Weekender, Nickelodeon Kids cricket program Crash the Bash, and was casted in the web series Time & Place.
Lee's Health & Fitness
Since sustaining major injuries throughout his career Lee has always maintained a strong focus on his fitness, which has seen him complete a number of personal achievements including marathons, triathlons and the Kokoda Track post retirement. Lee recently pushed his body and mind in one of the toughest reality TV shows in Australia, Survivor (Australia). From this experience he mentors a number of clients with regards to their health and fitness, helping them achieve a balanced life personally, professionally and mentally. Lee was humbled to be on the front cover of Mens Health magazine and is also fully committed to passing these values on to his children, Jake and Sam, by including them in many of his day to day physical activities. Lee recently has joined forces with Fitstop Australia and SQD Athletica so that he can continue to push his positive health and wellbeing message to the wider community.
