Garrett Kite

Garrett Kite, Kite Media


Originally from Idaho, Garrett has spent the past 10+ years in Utah and now calls Cache Valley home. His interest in entrepreneurship started at an early age and the idea of running his own business eventually became the goal. While in college, he started freelancing in website design and digital marketing, which became the start of Kite Media. Eventually, he pivoted from freelancing and began building a team of skilled marketers to join him. Today, he wears a few different hats within the business but spends most of his time on business development and managing the various responsibilities that come with owning a small business. He’s a fan of the outdoors, especially the mountains and lakes and takes any chance he can to visit the beach. He’s obsessed with cars, loves technology, enjoys paddle boarding, and playing and watching a variety of sports. Above all else, he loves spending time with his family: Lizzy, Graham & Ava. Garrett enjoys digital marketing because it allows him to combine creativity, strategy, and design to help other small businesses grow.
