Garrett started working with COS in 2010. Garrett is the web master for Reader’s Entertainment, creates websites for our clients, works in our distribution department and does special projects for COS.
Garrett is a kind of Jack-of-all-trades and excels at everything he does. We swear we have not employed any mind control over him to work with us. At least, not that he knows.
He's one of those people who can think fast on his feet and always tries to find a solution no matter how difficult a problem may seem. No, he did not pay us to say that. It’s really true!
Garrett is our Google guru, project management system guru and SEO guru. Just call him, “Garrett the Guru” we’re sure he’ll answer to that.
He sets up COS players for our bookseller/librarian program and we often turn to him with internet questions. He works directly with our Chief of Technology, Jacob Henderson.
He grew up in Southern and Central California with an intense interest in creative media. During his school years, he learned graphic arts, music theory, and many things about film and video game production.
After graduating early, at the age of 16, he got a job at Soundtrax Studios as a Foley Artist and spent several months recording sound effects tracks for various theatrical films, including PoolHall Junkies.
Then moving to Central California, he became more interested in web design and web marketing. He spent several years making a living with these skills, focusing on learning and delivering bleeding edge technology with his websites and teaching people how to market their site so that it actually brought them the results that they wanted.
During this time, he also created and maintained Tech-Bites.com, a site filled with free video tutorials for the average computer user. He gained his marketing knowledge through a number of reputable marketers, made a large impact on 2007's 30 Day Challenge, and was a member of the private marketing group, The Immediate Edge. His web marketing class was offered through Yosemite High's Adult Education program and he and his partner were invited to speak at many business groups, including the Chamber of Commerce. He created and profited from many niche sites with the techniques he learned and taught.
Garrett continues to be one of COS’ greatest assets.
