Garrett started Kite Media in 2010 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, playing and watching basketball, and watching college football. Garrett enjoys digital marketing because it allows him to combine creativity, strategy, and design to help businesses grow.

After graduating from USU with a degree in Business Administration, he took a job at Oregon State University.

He believes that marketing is a major key to business success and loves using his skill set to benefit our clients.

She saw the early days of Kite Media when attending school with Garrett, and first joined the team in 2015. Whitney is purpose-driven and also currently writes for a non-profit organization. She has a diverse marketing background including content writing, SEO, email marketing, and campaign strategy and development. She loves to write and can do it from just about anywhere, which is perfect for she and her husband’s military lifestyle. She also loves to explore new cities, go to the beach, longboard, read a good book, and have a relaxing Netflix sesh.
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.
Ashley grew up in Colorado and has since moved to Utah to pursue a degree in journalism with an emphasis in public relations. Through her time at Utah State, she has served as the PRSSA vice president and has held a number of marketing intern positions.

Tanner was born in Fort Lauderdale, FL, then bounced around his early life between California and Nebraska and finally found his home near Ogden, UT. Originally only interested in business for a career, he took a computer programming class in high school and he immediately fell in love with computers and web development. When he’s not on the computer, he’s up in the mountains skiing or visiting the Grand Tetons. He loves the outdoors and spending time with his two German Shepherds (basically bears).
Riley was born and raised in Idaho Falls, but now calls Logan her home. She met her husband at USU and is raising several plants with him. Riley has known that she’s wanted to be a graphic designer since she was in middle school yearbook class, and is now studying graphic design at USU. She’s now making things way cooler than middle school yearbooks. In her spare time, she enjoys listening to true crime podcasts, obsessing over art history, watching Parks and Rec with her husband, and hopefully traveling the world someday.
Natalie grew up in Farmington, Utah but has always had an itch to experience new places. She moved to Hawaii after graduating from high school and earned her associate’s degree from BYU-Hawaii. She misses the ocean every day but somehow manages. After an adventure to China to teach English, she transferred to Utah State and found her passion in public relations and marketing. While attending USU, and throughout her different social media and marketing internships, she realized how much she loves the opportunity to create and find effective ways to conquer any new and challenging tasks that come her way. She’s an insomniac, a sucker for salt and vinegar chips, and thinks nothing is cuter than a baby in a Halloween costume. She loves spending time with those she loves, revels in a successful prank, and most of her jokes are references from “The Office.”
