Get to Know Chad Cartee, Support Escalation Engineer

This Georgia native joined the MIS team in 2011 and is well-known and loved by our clients and staff alike. If there’s a tough problem to solve, Chad’s the go-to guy. “Chad was wonderful as always” and “Chad is the best!” are just two examples of the overwhelmingly positive reviews our clients leave after working with him. Tenacity is his middle name -- he won't stop looking for a fix to a problem until he finds it. Chad’s full of surprises, too. He's a big fan of hot sauces and you'd be hard-pressed to find one he can't handle.

Where were you born? Lived all my life in Georgia with the exception of 1.5 years when I relocated for a job.

What is your favorite book?  Richard Marcinko’s autobiography

What’s the craziest/funniest/most outrageous thing you’ve ever witnessed/done? I was in a car that flipped upside down while a bus drove under it and the only casualties were the popped shocks.

Where are some of the places you’ve traveled? And what was your favorite? I’ve traveled up and down the East Coast. I’ve been as far south as Puerto Rico and as far north as Montreal. Been to Hawaii but Las Vegas was probably my favorite place to visit as something was always happening.

What is something most people don’t know about you? I’m a huge fan of Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

When and how did you become interested in EDM? Had a friend introduce me to it with after-hours events in 2001 and fell in love immediately. Having missed the peak of Drums ‘n Bass (DnB) in the ‘90s I focused on this genre heavily while exploring Techno, Trance and others as well.

What is one thing you avoid like the plague? I have a long list of foods that I can’t stand the taste and avoid but will try almost any food once.

Favorite quote? “It is not my intent to offend, so if offense is taken, the fault lies with the audience.” Attributed to Patrick Henry but probably coined by Thomas Paine

Do you have a motto by which you live? If so, what? If you’re not learning, you’re dying.
