One of the highest profile media personalities in New Zealand, Louise is an entertainment pedigree rarely found in this country. Thirty years and counting in the industry, she is famous for re-inventing herself and not taking life or its pitfalls too seriously. To call her a career survivor, is an understatement.

Louise's range is unique: actor, presenter, journalist, social commentator, producer, director, award winner and of course, reality TV star (Most recently, as one of The Real Housewives of Auckland). In addition to all those roles, she is the founder of one of Auckland's most successful professional theatre companies, Tadpole Productions.

An absolute perfectionist with an eye and obsession for detail, Louise engages her audience with wit, humour and charm.
