Recently I have recorded a project for the UK VOA through the BBC e-learning department as well as corporate work with Bizpills in Spain. Other clients include: Silver Helix Audio on various audiobooks, Unity FM on a radio commercial and Db Media on a German / English language training CD.

I am a trained and experienced actor who has worked in a wide variety of genres from classical to modern, improvisational and multi-role playing, requiring vocal flexiblity and character differentiation.

I have experience in a BBC sound studio working on 'Weather in the Streets' for BBC radio 4 and have worked at the London Actors' Centre with radio director Gordon Lamont.

"I would have no hesitation in saying that Helen is an exceptional and unique acting talent. It is rare to find an actress whose instincts are so finely tuned. Helen brings not only an emotional intelligence to her performance but also a depth that is compelling. On our short film, she inhabited her character so fully that when I asked her to do a spontaneous monologue on set in front of the camera, she gave a devastatingly powerful and mesmerising performance, which left everyone present spellbound. Helen deserves all the accolades she gets. I hope to work with Helen again in the future and look forward to seeing her more on stage and on the screen."

"Helen has a remarkable maturity and depth to her performance. She has some of the finest instincts I have come across and a great ability to translate them into powerful action." Caroline Leslie, director.

"Whatever role she has been assigned, be it a middle age mom in her 50's from Barefoot In The Park to the young beautiful wife in Pinter's, Betrayal, she has been incandescent. She is extremely talented,beautiful, and smart, A powerful combination." Jennifer Gelfer, director
