Fallon Leigh O’Brien is a videographer, journalist, visual artist, and community activist. She focuses on the areas of arts and culture in her show, Fallon’s Daily Toast, which has been airing via social media since mid-2014. Her short-form, lively video essays are known for their immediacy, fun, and authenticity.
Fallon joined Jesa Damora of FunnelCake Marketing to co-host the Toast and bump it to a new level. The show was picked up by Channel 3 in Somerville where better production values, a host-operated set, and the input of a professional community helped to reshape the show.
Previously, Fallon was co-creator and camera person for North Country Local News, the first web-based broadcasting company based in Bethlehem NH. This popular weekly show ranged broadly over community topics of interest -- farming, music, business, sports, special events, government, weather, and art. She assisted Andrea D'Alton of Pisces Moon Pottery to create and manage Studio 42, an art gallery in Littleton NH, curating regular shows and maintaining an inventory of decorative arts and crafts. She was lead organizer and host of northern New Hampshire’s first TEDx conference north of the notch titled: True North: A Rural Renaissance.
Additionally, she's live-painted at popular festivals around New England- including Magnetic Melt, Lespeshtival, Euphoria, and Jerry Jam. She's acted as a fundraiser, volunteer recruiter, media-designer, curator, and overall production manager. She's served on the Conservation Committee of Easton, MA and has spearheaded recreational youth projects like Bethlehem Skate Park Project, a growing project that has allowed skaters, bikers, and rollerskaters to practice their skills on the new half pipe, rails and jumps. She's an activist with a passion for humanitarian and environmental initiatives. She's traveled to D.C to speak with Congress members about H.R 128, a bill that would bring human rights and inclusive governance in Ethiopia. She also spoke boldly against the expansion of a landfill in the heart of the mountains very near to the Ammoonoosuc River. Fallon moved south from her New England stronghold to immerse herself in the cultural phenomenon that is New Orleans. She's been there for a year and looks forward to exploring the people, culture, lands, and magic.
