Since then he has managed multi-store optometry/retail practices, been involved in optician education and training at university level, run his own optical businesses and has worked for many years in the luxury wholesale market in the USA.

Louis is well known for his social media activities over many years. His expertise in creating energizing and successful strategies such as the “Support Independent Eyewear” campaign are a testament to his skills in this area. He is also an experienced marketer having been a Marketing Manager for a large optometry company and, more recently, managing the event marketing for the LOFT Eyewear Shows in New York and Las Vegas as well as digital media for the Bevel, Blake Kuwahara and Sospiri brands.
A father of two, Louis is a keen follower of his children's various sporting activities, particularly swimming and soccer. As an avid photographer he can often be seen at events, camera in hand, poised to take a great action shot. His other passions include playing music, art, design, vintage motorcycles and and his beloved Australian Football team, the Western Bulldogs.
