A little bit about me...
Louisa has had a love of cinema from an early age, starting with her first theatrical experience (“Star Wars”) when she was barely 4 years old. Soon after, she would sneak downstairs at 6 am on Sunday mornings to quietly watch “At the Movies” with Siskel and Ebert. Louisa was the strange 8 year old who asked for subscriptions to film magazines for Christmas and movie posters for her birthday.
Growing up in a small town meant limited theater options so she spent most of her childhood repeatedly watching a very large VHS tape library. Movies remained a central part of her life over the years, and her love affair with the movies blossomed in college where she earned a degree in Cinema Studies.
Movies are still Louisa’s passion and she enjoys films that span all genres. The Sundance Film Festival, TIFF, SXSW, the Napa Valley Film Festival, and San Diego Comic Con are yearly trips for this self-proclaimed movie geek.
Louisa is a contributing “New Voices” writer for LeonardMaltin.com, a Tomatometer-approved critic for Rotten Tomatoes, a programming screener for the San Diego Film Festival, a film reviewer for CherryPicks, a long-time Film Independent member and voter for the Independent Spirit Awards, member of the Society of Professional Journalists, president of the Online Association of Female Film Critics, a board member of Critics Groups for Equality in Media (CGEM), and is a proud member of the Las Vegas Film Critics Society, the Internet Film Critic Society (IFCS), and the Online Film & Television Association.
