Noisy / Loud Person

hello everybody

I'd like to know if it's correct to say that a person is "noisy" and "loud", what is the difference between these two words??

Thanks in Advance.

    To me a "noisy person" would be one whose actions are noisy: walking, closing doors, throwing books on a table, sneezing, making dishes clatter...
    I'm not sure I would say "a loud person" (though I'm sure others do so).
    I can imagine talking about a "loud-voiced person" or a "loud-talking person". I think of "loud" especially with regard to the person's voice.
