I credit my mom for my love of organization and being prepared. Before I joined the Reed team, my mom and I co-owned a cleaning company for 18 years, which strangely enough, turned out to be an excellent training ground for what I do now.
In 2001 I joined the Reed team and the Reed family when I married Bob and Betty’s youngest son, Dan. Since Reed is a family business it seemed like a natural thing to do. I began my journey here in Guest Services and quickly learned everything you would ever need to know about the photo printing industry, from film processing to printing to mounting, and even the proper way to package the finished product. That was a whirlwind of an education for someone with exactly zero experience in the industry! After a few years, I shifted gears and continued my education as an Inside Sales Account Manager. I managed all the accounts that came my way and learned to juggle multiple projects and complex needs. This gave me experience providing a whole new level of service to our clients.
Now, as Manager of the Finishing and Voorwood Departments, I have finally found my calling. Each day I use my years of honed skills in organization and multi-tasking, combined with my willingness to “get dirty” to coordinate the people, projects and inventory that pass through our very busy finishing department. I am still learning and growing, and I love working with our sassy, yet amazingly talented finishing team. I consider it my personal mission to make sure we have exactly the right people in the right place to give all our clients’ projects the quality and care that they deserve.
I love what I do here at Reed. Over the years I’ve washed dishes, changed tires, picked up trash, driven trucks, buses and done custom framing. At Reed I operate the computerized milling machine that we use to make our Gallery Mount Collection. Being so versatile in my abilities, I can also help out where ever else I’m needed and often do. I’m a Colorado native and an avid sports fan. Go Broncos! On the weekends I am free to do whatever I want, and I spend them with my dog and/or fishing.
Like my brother, David Arguello, I have had a verity of different jobs, from warehouse manager to shipping and receiving, and custom framer. We both came to work at Reed in February of 2007, where I work in production. Framing, canvas stretching, building and assembling our Gallery Mount Collection and helping out where ever else I’m needed. I love sports, GO BRONCOS! In my free time I’m the team manager for my son’s football team. I fish, camp and spend as much time as possible with my wife and three beautiful children.
