About Us

Our Story

I was born and raised in Durham and am committed to this diverse city. The people are warm and generous, there is a wide range of activities and opportunities, including hometown sports both professional and collegiate, entertainment, dining, and higher education. There is something for everyone! As a Durham businessman, I am committed to giving back to this city and will continue to sponsor activities here that benefit the less fortunate.

My story has led me to be driven and thrive in fast-paced environments. I discovered my entrepreneurial streak early in life, selling lemonade in front of the Agape Corner on Holloway Street when I was 12 years old. I began working in residential construction in my late teens. Over the years, with my wife Ericka’s support, I have worked 80-hour weeks, flipped cars, tools and houses to finance the transition of CQC from a two-person operation to what it is today. My employees did the rest and are CQC’s most precious resource. Together we try very hard to make our clients’ renovations as spectacular as possible.
