My Voice Experience
My first VO experience was several years ago with Lamps Plus working on their in-house training videos. Most recently I have worked on short-films - one as a news reporter that you heard on the TV in the background of a scene. Last year I worked on a film called "Bombshell" about Marilyn Monroe where I was the voice of the White House Operator when she was trying to reach President Kennedy. That voice over opened the film to set the mood and was brought back several times as she re-lived moments in her life.
In the past year I have completed 11 audio books which can be found on Audible.com. Several in the fantasy genre which called for a variety of voices for each book, from young women, old witches and teenage boys.

I have a AT2020Mic and use Audacity for editing. I also have easy access to Voice Trax in Los Angeles.
Helene's theatre background helps her bring wonderfully rich character choices to her work. Her facility with language was honed working on Shakespeare, Ibsen and Shaw. Spending her college years as a radio DJ also brought variety to her voice as she worked as a classical music and rock DJ. As all actors Helene has worn many hats including working in the insurance field. She has added health insurance and employee benefits knowledge to her already varied background.
