Heads of House: Claudia and Dave Darmofal

Claudia grew up in the suburbs of Detroit and received her Bachelor of Arts degree from James Madison College of Michigan State University and obtained her Juris Doctor from the University of Detroit School of Law.   She has concentrated her practice in the areas of estate planning and estate administration.  For the past 8 years she has worked for Brier & Ganz LLP in Needham, MA as a practice manager and paralegal.

Claudia enjoys traveling, cooking, and enthusiastically rooting for the New England Patriots. She and Dave are new to Warehouse as heads of house having joined the Warehouse in August 2017.

Dave also grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, but did not meet Claudia until graduate school.  He earned his Bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan, and his Master’s and PhD from MIT.  He joined the MIT faculty in 1998.  His interests include computational fluid dynamics; aerodynamics; and, improving engineering education.  He teaches a variety of courses in fluid dynamics and numerical methods at both the undergraduate and graduate level.

Dave enjoys playing music (piano, guitar, and singing), cooking, jogging, hiking and fishing.  And, he is also a huge New England Patriots fan!  He and Claudia have been heads of house at the Warehouse since August 2017.

Dave and Claudia have two daughters.  Madison attends MIT as an undergraduate in the class of 2019 in Course 20, biological engineering. Abigail is an undergraduate in the class of 2020 at the University of Michigan studying computer science.

Dave and Claudia also have a German Shorthaired Pointer called Drugi (pronounced Droogie). He is a little nervous about moving into the city as he has never ridden in an elevator, but he is excited to meet all his new friends at Warehouse.  He loves taking walks and playing fetch.
