The TeamMeet the crew that makes up Kite Media.
Garrett started Kite Media in 2011 during his senior year of college and the company has been one of his passions ever since. Originally from Idaho, Garrett spent several years living in Los Angeles before making Utah his home. He loves the outdoors, especially the mountains and takes any chance he can to visit the beach. He loves cars, paddle boarding, riding his bike, playing and watching basketball, and traveling. Garrett enjoys digital marketing because it allows him to combine creativity, strategy, and design to help businesses grow.
Pay-Per-Click Advertising Specialist
Dusty is a native of San Diego, CA and now calls Utah home. He is a graduate of Utah State University with a degree in Business Administration & Marketing. Dusty loves sports and enjoys watching the San Diego Padres & Utah Jazz, as well as going to the beach. He also enjoys working around the house and going to the gym. Dusty finds satisfaction in helping businesses improve their online presence and enjoys coming to work each day. He also loves spending time with his wonderful wife and two young boys.
Colten Van Tussenbrook
Colten started at Kite Media in 2016 while finishing up his degree from Utah State in Technical Writing and Computer Science. He loves working with the latest technology and you’ll usually find him in the office writing code or designing a website. Colten is passionate about the Utah Jazz and will tell you that Jordan did in fact push off in the ’98 NBA Finals. When Colten is not connected online, he’s usually on a remote river fly fishing (if it’s warm), or hitting the slopes and enjoying the greatest snow on earth (if it’s cold).
Graphic Designer, Web Designer
After 3 years of marriage, Lizzy decided it was finally time to join her husband Garrett and the Kite Media team. She was born in Las Vegas and raised in Utah. She graduated from Utah State University with a bachelor’s degree in Family Finance. After graduation, she worked in the mortgage industry for 3 years doing marketing and office management. She has a passion for graphic design and all things creative. Lizzy enjoys playing tennis, watching movies and trying new restaurants with her husband.
Garrett grew up near Salt Lake City. He recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science at Utah State University. Garrett is a huge sports fan and loves watching the NFL and NBA as well as playing beach volleyball and spikeball. He enjoys warm weather and visits as many national parks as he can every summer – he especially loves Yellowstone and Yosemite. He is a strong believer that slow drivers should stick to the right lane on the freeway. When he can, he loves to read, write music, and watch movies.
Adam joined the Kite Media team in 2016 after moving from his hometown of Kaysville, Utah to Logan to study at Utah State University. Most recently he lived in Southern California, and he misses the good weather that Utah doesn’t always offer. Adam finds joy in helping others and loves to put his problem-solving and creative skills to the test, especially in the field of digital marketing. Adam loves sports and is always up for a game of pick-up basketball or beach volleyball. He also enjoys playing the guitar and eating Mexican food.
Kym joined Kite Media after studying technical communication and marketing at Utah State University, where she was able to gain a wide range of digital marketing skills. She loves being able to use these skills to help others accomplish their business goals and succeed. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, playing board games, and eating (too much) ice cream.
Graham joined the Kite Media team a couple years ago and has been an integral part of the team ever since. He stops by the office a couple times a week to check in on things. He honestly doesn’t do very much except give fist bumps when we need encouragement and watches cartoons that we probably enjoy more than he does. He likes rocks.
Ryker was born and raised in Sandy, Utah. After living in El Salvador for several years, he joined the Kite Media team in 2017 while studying graphic design and marketing at Utah State University. He finds joy in self-improvement and interacting with others. Ryker also enjoys sports, playing musical instruments, and spending time with his family and friends.
Digital marketing specialist
Born and raised in Ogden, Utah, Trevor discovered a love for Utah State University and moved to Logan. After graduating from USU with a degree in Business Administration, he took a job at Oregon State University. Trevor returned to Utah and joined the Kite Media team in 2018, bringing an end to his time in Oregon and an unsuccessful search for Bigfoot (he’s still a believer). Trevor has a passion for health and fitness and is hoping to complete an IronMan race. He believes that marketing is a major key to business success and loves using his skill set to benefit our clients.

"Working with Kite Media for our SEO & PPC has been a great experience. They were immediately able to come in and improve several of our keywords in the rankings. They were able to adjust a lot of the keyword bids and reduced our cost-per-click on some words significantly while keeping us high in the search results. They have been able to fine-tune our account since day one to try and get us the best results possible. Organic visits to our website have been trending upwards since they took over! I highly recommend their services!"
