    Hello! I’m Lou. I’m a Change-maker and Sense-maker in Chief of my own life; a doodler and storyteller. I’ve always been fascinated with change and transitions, ever since I studied for my degree in Psychology. Whether it’s imposed on us from the outside, or comes from within, change can be hard. Exciting, confusing, frustrating, terrifying, disconcerting, exhilarating, and much much more… and it often has us feeling way off track and far from our intended destination. I’ve spent much of my life collecting a toolkit to help us navigate life’s twists and turns whilst staying curious and having a sense of choice and control. We can’t control everything! Many of us are still learning this lesson, to stop trying to control it all (my hand is raised for this one!). I have found that we can work on navigating the changes in our lives in a way that leaves us feeling empowered, rather than at the whim of other people’s expectations or some other force. I’m interested in working with people who are:

    My name is Nelson de Witt, but I was born Roberto Coto. Separated from my birth family during El Salvador’s civil war, by death and adoption, I was reunited with them at the age of 16.

    I’m a jack of all trades that has done everything from business process design to video production to server administration to film photography. I’ve run, consulted on, and wrote a book about Crowdfunding campaigns. I’ve taught myself everything from Ruby on Rails to narrative story structure.

    What do all these things have in common?

    I’m a skilled problem solver who can tackle complex issues and find solutions that combine art with outcomes.
