Prior to joining Diskeeper Corporation, Carter spent several years heavily involved in high performance computing initiatives focused on the media and investment banking arenas in New York City and Shanghai, China with companies such as BlueArc, SGI, Sony Broadcast, and Teranex. During this time, Carter had a major win closing a multi-faceted deal with NBA Entertainment to implement the world's largest sports media archive while with SGI. Other clients involved in implementing new data management, storage, and processing technologies included the NYSE, NBC, CBS, HBO, Rainbow (Cablevision), and many other banks and media concerns.

In the late 90's, Carter was involved in the successful start-up of Digital Island, a huge innovator in the web hosting, internetworking, and content delivery market. Carter built the sales and delivery team in the Northeast in less than 12 months into a well-executing team of 37 staff winning deals such as the first completely out-sourced retail e-banking site for Chase Manhattan to the tune of $25M. Digital Island's data centers, content delivery and global ATM network still serve at the core of some of the largest cloud services companies today.

Prior to Digital Island, Carter spent many years at Sony Business and Professional Group in sales management responsible for numerous successful technology launches including video conferencing, Digital photography, tele-learning, MPEG encoding, and video server products across a broad range of business markets. During this time, Carter was elected to the coveted Sony Samurai Society for his work in implementing a state-wide distance education network in North Carolina and the first professional digital photo-proofing system which tripled sales for Wal-Mart's photo studios.

Prior to Sony, Carter led the sales, delivery, and marketing team for a successful start-up in the video- conferencing market (VSI) building private fiber-optic video communication systems for dozens of multi- national corporations, government agencies, and military installations including a muti-way video tele- presence network for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Before entering the video compression field, Carter was employed as an Advanced Manufacturing Systems Engineer by Lockheed Corporation. During this time, Carter developed the software architecture for an advanced Materials Resource Planning system which created manpower and material planning for aircraft which were still in early design stages by analyzing CAD data-sets.

Carter worked his way through the Georgia Institute of Technology, attending the STI campus (now Southern Polytechnic State University), obtaining a Bachelor of Science with High Honor in Industrial Engineering Technology. Carter also holds a Fundamentals of Engineering (F.E.) license in the State of Georgia. Carter is married with three children to his wife from Moscow, Russia and resides near Glendale, California.
