Frostbite was used to cold temperatures. He worked briefly as a lineman on the Alaskan pipeline, but found it unchallenging despite to freezing temperatures and hazardous conditions. He found challenging work in the Army. Frostbite graduated from transportation school at Fort Ustis and armored school at Fort Knox. He also became a skilled mechanic.
On the G.I. Joe team, he drove the Snow Cat arctic assault half-track. Among his missions for the team, Frostbite fought to free the small nation of Frusenland from Cobra when their Terror-Dromes there activiated their paranoia waves and plunged the nation into chaos. Frostbite and the others were even affected by the paranoia waves for a time before shutting them down with help from Battle Force 2000.
On another mission, Frostbite and a small team of Joes teamed up with the Soviets' October Guard to destroy a Terror-Drome hidden beneath the ice near the border between Alaska and the U.S.S.R.
The Joe team was disbanded in 1994, but was later reinstated in 2001. A year after, Frostbite rejoined the team, tracking down a smuggled nuclear device at the U.S.-Canada border. He later headed to the Arctic circle to investigate a secret laboratory where experiments had gone wrong and fought the mutated humans trapped inside. Some time later Frostbite headed into Tibet as backup for a team investigating a hidden Red Ninja retreat where Cobra Commander and Storm Shadow had been hiding. Some time later, after the Joes stopped a plot by Cobra to unleash the weapon known as the Tempest, and defeated a new threat, the Red Shadows, the military again disbanded the team.
One year later, the Joe team was reformed with a smaller roster of active members. Frostbite, like most former Joes, is a reserve member of the new team. He was called back to duty to shut down Cobra's illegal oil-drilling operation in the arctic.
