I have been with Performance Kia for 23 years. I like meeting new people. Working in Sales is the perfect job for me. I am originally from East Orange, NJ. I'm a graduate of Pepperdine University School of Business in Malibu, California. For several years I worked in the music industry as a singer, dancer, and composer. Through music I've had a chance to travel around the world. I've worked with Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Quincy Jones, Madonna, Eric Clapton, and several others. I have lived in New Jersey, New York, Miami, Detroit, Las Vegas, California, England, Paris, and Barcelona. Barcelona is my favorite. I believe life be lived not studied!!

Currently I am in Auto Sales and Leasing, representing the KIA brand for years at Performance Kia! I am the son of Robert and Doris. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest! I graduated and became a United States Marine. Went back to college after getting out of active duty. Since then I have been a QC inspector, engineer, a carpenter/glazer, a inventory management specialist, a marine repair technician, a parts department manager, a limited energy electrician, a salesman, a marine service writer/manager and many more things! Needless to say I am the Jack of all trades and the Master of None! I have lived and travelled around the world seeing more than most. Having travelled the world my first love is the Puget Sound and all that it has to offer.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Antonio Culotti. I have found that the key to being successful in this business is putting the customer's needs first and listening to what they are really saying. I enjoy sports and the great outdoors. I also enjoy working out and running. I have a daughter age 13. She keeps me busy. We love beaches and mountains.
