About Our TeamMeet the crew that makes up Kite Media.
Garrett started Kite Media in 2010 as a student at Utah State University 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 go to the beach. When he’s not working you can find him catching up on his favorite sports teams – the Seattle Seahawks, LA Dodgers, Utah Jazz and his beloved Utah State Aggies. Garrett loves digital marketing and how it allows him to combine creativity, strategy and design to help his clients gain new business.

Garrett grew up near Salt Lake City, spent a couple years in California, and then moved up to Utah State to pursue a degree in Exercise Science. Before joining KiteMedia, he spent his time helping to grow a small business franchise here in Logan, Utah. 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 visiting as many national parks as he can every summer. When life slows down, he loves to read, write, and watch movies.
Adam joined the Kite Media team in 2016 after moving from his hometown Kaysville, Utah to Logan to study at Utah State University. He recently spent two years living in Southern California, where he came to love the good weather that Utah doesn’t always seem to 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 pick-up game of basketball or beach volleyball. He also enjoys playing the guitar, eating Mexican food, and connecting with others through social media.
Mark Bell is a Salt Lake native studying psychology at Utah State University. His specialties include photography, videography, and talking about feelings. Mark could eat sushi for the most meals for the rest of his life, and is the kind of person who tells others not to end their sentences in prepositions (but ironically). He absolutely believes that everyone should make their beds.
