Lou grew up in a traditional Vietnamese household where English was discouraged and he was, by tradition, expected to live at home and care for the family. After Andy, Rich and Allen lured him away from a job at Discover Card Services with the promise of less money but the opportunity to sleep late, Lou became the first full-time House Industries employee. Since January of 1995, Lou has faithfully fulfilled all House Industries orders, built every Street Van and duped every disk. In the early days, Lou had to distinguish between the subtle differences in ring tones to determine whether he should answer the phone “House Industries” or “Brand Design.” His rare vacations are preceded by much hand-wringing trepidation because nobody wants to do his job.
