Before joining TAG, he worked with the U.S. Consulate Naha, assisting the Political and Economics section with reporting on Okinawa’s local elections, economic developments, and critical local industries. He also served as a Junior Fellow at the Library of Congress, working with the Japanese collection to modernize their metadata of prewar Japanese magazines and serials.

As a graduate student, Quade presented at academic conferences on the role of silent film-performing katsudo benshi in Taiwan’s post-1945 Sinicization and the influence of Japanese and Taiwanese media strategies on post-socialist Chinese television advertising. His master’s thesis asserted that the “hostile translation” of Japanese wartime texts into Chinese was an essential part of China’s Pacific War efforts and received a Fletcher Memorial Award Honorable Mention.
