"It's a thrill to fulfil your own childhood dreams,
but as you get older, you may find that enabling the dreams of others is even more fun.”
Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
Welcome to ABVO. This is the culmination of 13 years of love, sweat and tears. Yes, I did mean to say love.
At ABVO, everything we do is done with love. From a 15 second voice over, to on-going coaching for students across Brisbane. That's because the work heals us, just as much as it helps you.
Hi, I'm Angus Brennan, Director of ABVO! Thanks for visiting!
My creative journey began in community radio at the fresh age of 12, starting Mega Music on Ya Friday, an independent and new music show on Fraser Coast FM.
With the idea of helping local, independent music get heard, I began podcasting an indie music Podcast, featuring some of the talented Australian artists that I admired.
Formal education in Radio Broadcasting at AFTRS in 2015 taught me the depths of the Australian radio industry.
I quickly realised that the audience is the most important part of any radio station.
In January 2017, I happened to connect with James Henderson - a hospitality professional and podcast host. He brought me on as his part-time podcast producer. After only a few short months, The Hospopreneurs Podcast became a 2018 Podcast Awards Finalist, and was named one of Australia's Top 10 Podcasts for Small Business by Canstar.
That brings us to today, where I'm working as a full-time voice over artist, audio producer and voice coach.
I can proudly say that I do what I do to help people. It brings me a lot of joy to help others grow their skills, create podcasts, expand their scope of influence and connect with their clients.
Reaching our own potential is great, but having the opportunity to nurture another to do the same is what makes every day fulfilling for me.
Looking forward to connecting with you,
This is our gorgeous logo. We love collaborating with our talented friends, so we've got to make a special mention to Janelle Armand who went to the end of the Earth to help us design a logo which encapsulated our unique vibe.
To see how it came together, visit her Artstation!
Speaking of talented friends, Tempus Media need a shout-out for taking all of the beautiful headshots on our site. We've worked with them to voice several video projects, and they went above and beyond to make Angus look like a model. (that's not easy!)
