Tad is a Computer Science Cadet at S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy of Science and Technology and also a bartender in the Boiler Room of the Adademy.
While investigating the individuals responsible for the attacks in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy of Science and Technology who used a Freezing Device, Coulson's Team tried to blend with the cadets going to their hangout place, the Boiler Room.
There Skye tricked Tad into believing that she was a Level 7 operative who was stationed at The Sandbox. He subsequently informed her about Callie Hannigan's interest in being transferred to the Sandbox upon her graduation from the academy.
- Skye was told that as a hacker and computer specialist/expert in computer science that she would attend the Communications Academy. Despite this, Tad apparently attends the Sci-Tech Academy.
