I’m a director living and working between Los Angeles and Australia.
I have directed feature films JUCY (TIFF 2010) and ALL MY FRIENDS ARE LEAVING BRISBANE (Best Film Natfilm festival, Copenhagen 2008), shorts and television drama, including beloved UK-Australian series NEIGHBOURS and the glamourous comedy webseries STAGE MUMS (NY Webfest 2017).
A graduate of the Australian national film school (AFTRS) and the UCLA professional program, I also have extensive experience in theatre and short film and I recently completed my PHD studies.
My work is typically fun, smart and gutsy.

Reviews for JUCY:
Rotten Tomatoes 100% fresh
“Colorfully stylized, sweet and silly, yet encompassing some serious issues, frisky low-budget laffer “Jucy,” from Australian helmer Louise Alston (“All My Friends Are Leaving Brisbane”), transforms the chick pic into womance.” – Alissa Simon, Variety
“This is a bright, sassy feel good film, and sure to become a sleepover classic for the middle school set.“ shedoesthecity.com
