I personally drank the Subaru Kool-Aid back in 2009 when I purchased my first of 5 Subaru's from Schulte Subaru. It's hard to describe the energy and feeling I got as soon as I entered the dealership. Everyone was always very friendly and helpful through each of my car deals. Even when I would come in for simple maintenance I got the feeling that they were genuinely happy to see me and wanted to help. I have been in sales most of my adult life, so I naturally gravitated towards a sales position here because of the passion towards Subaru and general vibe I felt as a customer at the dealership. Previously, I worked as a general manager of a jewelry store for over 8 years before taking my position at Schulte Subaru.


My wife, Reina, and I have 5 year old twins (boy and girl) named Paxton and Piper. My free time not spent with my family usually goes towards video games. Many of the employees at Schulte are friends inside and outside of work. We have a pretty good sized group that plays games together religiously.

I have worked for Schulte Subaru for just over 3 and a half years. My favorite part about working here is the people and relationships I have built throughout the sales process. Buying a car from Schulte is unlike anything you have experienced anywhere else in the auto industry. It's easy, quick and actually fun buying a car. I would love the opportunity to earn your business if I haven't already. Please feel fry to stop in and say hi or let me know if I can help in any way.

What do you love about working for Subaru? 
The vibe! We do things different here. Happy, hones, nice! That's who we are and why I joined the team. 

What is one thing on your bucket list? 
I would love to go to Tokyo someday. Experience a completely different culture and see the beautiful landscapes. 

What are your hobbies and how did you get into them?
Too many to list, but the short version is, I've been a collector all my life. I collect it all! Movies, games, comics, cards. I truly specialize in celebrity/actor autographs.

I am honored to be a part of the Schulte Subaru family! It is unlike any place I have ever worked before.  The friendly and high energy atmosphere is rare l! Being a Sioux Falls resident I love to give back to the community and serve where I can! Here at Schulte Subaru that is our main goal; to know without a doubt that the person driving off our lot just received the best experience and also the confidence knowing they will be well taken care of!

When I am not present at Schulte Subaru, I love engaging with friends and visiting my amazing family (and attending baseball games of course!)

I have been working for Schulte Subaru for 7 months and I truly believe without a doubt we are not just providing Sioux Falls with top of the line vehicles, but we are making a positive impact on Sioux Falls as a whole. I would be honored to serve you and find the right vehicle for you. So come on out!
