Tod Damon grew up in Springfield, Massachusetts also known as the “City of Homes”. Throughout childhood he was regularly taken on historic home tours; he considers the This Old House TV program the start of a more functional interest. In 2000 he graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a BFA concentration in Interior Design. With Penn State University’s Architectural program Tod studied abroad in Rome, Italy, where an interest in landscape design and urban planning took root.
Alongside his love of the arts, Tod had maintained a separate managerial role, that of package operations then facility engineering at UPS from 1992-2005. From here he was able to understand the business side of running a large company and the responsibilities of service to the customer. In 2005 he left UPS to take on a new position within Stop & Shop’s facilities group and now maintains a portfolio of forty-two locations, covering all aspects of each buildings maintenance.
His home is an 1893 shingle-style Victorian located in a national historic district on the city’s West Side. Purchased three years ago, the home needed some updating and a refocus on the property’s landscaping. As a bonus an original carriage house, unique with five sides and over two-thousand square feet of space inside sits mournfully at the rear of the property. His dream is to restore this structure to its original glory before the elements take it away forever. Since moving into the neighborhood Tod has won awards for contributing to the city’s tree canopy by organizing multiple tree plantings, assisted the local neighborhood group in a historic battle for proper installations of gas meters and started a neighborhood email system. His recognition of making a neighborhood a place not just to live but a place to be involved has energized others to do the same.
Tod joined Armory Properties in 2010 to bring his love of historic homes and sense of community to each person who is seeking that next place to call home.
