Jim Hoffman

Jim has been widely sought after for many years in Chicago for his sound design and mixing skills. He has brought his creative thinking and tasteful expertise to many of America's top brands. The marriage of sound design and music is natural for him. In addition to founding Hoffman Sound he co-founded Jira Productions, a company specializing in original music and production. Having grown up in a family of photographers, when Jim is not behind a mixing board you're likely to find him behind a camera shooting and directing something fun. Guess who does the sound?
