My Voice Experience

I have been a professional speaker and involved in the education and training industry for the past 12 years. One of my primary areas of focus is helping children and adults to develop better communication skills and present themselves in a positive way.

I am very familiar with the need to present materials with clarity and confidence, while attempting to make an emotional, personal connection with the listener.



Everyone loved the VO. You nailed it! My editor went ahead and used your mp3 version and it sounds fine. You can send me an invoice when you are ready. Great job.


Matt Hubbard,

“I found Ken Budka to be extremely easy to work with, professional, and flexible. He is a very talented voice professional and easily adapted to the needs of the project. Ken provided me my sound files exactly in line with the criteria I gave, and he was very attentive to details of the script. I would highly recommend Ken Budka for projects requiring a true professional who is a pleasure to work with.”

Larry Israel, Exchange Analytics Inc.

I have worked with Ken Budka for close to a decade and I speak from experience when I say he is a joy to work with and has an infectious positive attitude. In fact, I cannot think of a time he did not have a smile on his face. He is an incredibly hard worker with a high level of integrity. I am always excited when I get to work with Ken on a project because the quality of his work is consistently outstanding, often times exceeding my expectations. The combination of his enthusiasm, work ethic and ability to take direction is a rarity. When faced with a challenge, Ken always focuses on and seeks a solution. He is constantly honing his craft and I feel he is a master communicator. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone who is looking for a true professional and outstanding results.
