Reed and his wife Heather are very passionate about the arts and are committed to engaging and attracting new generations of audiences and patrons. Reed also serves on the Board of Directors for Open Stage Theatre here in town, and Heather is a founder and producer of the annual Fort Collins Fringe Festival which creates a space for performance artists of all disciplines to flourish. He plays the guitar and dabbles with various other stringed instruments, and she is an actress who is constantly working on new projects. They live in LaPorte, where they enjoy the quiet life with their chickens, ducks, and garden.
In addition to his involvement in the local arts community, Reed is an active board member of the Fort Collins Sertoma Club, a group dedicated to improving the quality of life for underprivileged youth in Northern Colorado through fundraising and by working directly with local organizations such as Partners Mentoring Youth and the Boys and Girls Club.
Reed works for Edward Jones Investments and deals primarily with families and businesses on asset management and estate planning. He enjoys the art of educating and empowering his clients to have lasting success in their financial lives, and cherishes the relationships he has with them.
On his bucket-list are: mastering the bagpipes, visiting Iceland, and learning the art of beekeeping.
