My Voice Experience

My voice history is rich and varied, although I've done very few recording gigs as of yet. I was the "voice of Star Winchester Theatres" for three years, giving the movie times and theatre rules to patrons over the phone via a recording. I worked at the Michigan Renaissance Festival for 9 years doing a variety of voices from town drunk to Juliet in the one of the main stage shows there. I have performed in many children's theatre shows in and around the detroit and nation-wide. I've done street fairs in towns and shows in malls, all with different voices. I look forward to taking care of all your voice over needs in the future! Thank you for your attention.

My Training

Four years of vocal training in high school, three years in college. Years of professional work in the detroit and new york areas doing shows and festivals and faires. Classes at PrattWeaver Voice Over Institute.

My Studio Equipment

iMusic on my Macbook and my Snowball microphone

Additional Skills

I think that clients need to know that I'm a hard worker and that I strive to keep professionalism as one of my best traits, whether it's onstage, on camera, on microphone, in the booking office at the studio where i work, I would want clients to know that I have a wide range of experiences in regards to my voice that would make me a valuable asset to any project. Years of singing and acting projects to draw upon. I would want them to know how easy I am to work with and how flexible. I would want them to know that hiring Jim Ku will always lead to a pleasant working experience.
