My Story

Garett in 2001


As a little geek, I was gifted my first computer, a hideous, painfully slow, tan Gateway. I was immediately eager to discover what I could to do with my computer. Within a week, I discovered AOL Hometown Pages and Yahoo's GeoCities. I quickly learned to write code that would allow me to customize my own web pages.

I fell in love with creating images and coding them into place, so I created my own blog using Greymatter and b2/cafelog (predecessors to WordPress). During the rise of social media, I went on to design Myspace layouts for friends and local musicians. This was the start of my first design business. An entrepreneur was born.

Freelance work continued to grow, so I opened my own studio, Desoulbel. Of course I used my earnings to buy what every high school kid wants, computers, sneakers, and video games. Over the next seven years I worked on many projects. Some of the highlights include work for concerts with Oddisee and Dee-1, and working on DJ Green Lantern's ThatsHipHop.com.

Garett in 2014


Upon graduating from college with a degree in Computer Science, I expanded my studio to focus on elevating businesses and creating brands. I worked on projects featuring startups and musicians including Stereo Assault, SendBeatsTo, A3C, TeamBackPack, Mvstermind, and J'Demul.

Garett in 2017


I retired my studio, Desoulbel, and launched a creative branding agency, Garett®. My mission is to partner with entrepreneurs and startups, providing mentorship and expertise in order to build viable brands together, telling stories that build long-term customer relationships.
