Born and raised in New Jersey, Lou received his undergraduate degree from Stevens Institute of Technology one of the best engineering schools in the nation and also one of only two schools in the nation to bestow a Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree upon its students. Lou co-founded a successful firm selling 3-D design software, Tri-Mech Solutions Inc. Lou successfully exited Tri-Mech in April 2000.

Lou was diagnosed with Glomerulonephritis in 1986. He received a life saving kidney donation from his mother, Donna Lamoureux, on September 25, 2000. Within 9 months of the transplant surgery, Lou embarked on a grueling bicycle trip across the USA, where he averaged 130 miles per day. He has competed in the 2002 and 2004 US Transplant Games as well as the 2003 and 2005 World Transplant Games to raise awareness for the urgent need for organ donation. Lou was one of the lucky ones who received a transplant, but approximately 95,000 people in the US are waiting for a life saving organ donation and approximately 65,000 of that number are waiting for Kidneys. He currently serves on the National Kidney Foundation, National Capital Area Speakers Bureau, and has given talks on organ donation in the DC Metropolitan Area.

In 2003, Lou received his MBA in Marketing from the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland.
