We're new here... sorta.

Well, hello!

As a co-founder of Calliope, I'm thrilled to be back in Northeast Ohio, and excited to share our journey with you. After serving nearly 12 years in the military, it was time to return to my roots and pursue my passion for storytelling. With my incredible and talented wife, we have embarked on a new adventure – a start-up media production company that's quickly gaining traction.

As noted in our mission statement, Calliope is dedicated to creating high-quality content for a variety of platforms, from television and film to digital media and advertising. We truly believe that media has the power to change the world, and we always strive to create content that engages, entertains, and inspires.

Recently, tragedy struck close to home with the toxic train derailment in East Palestine. Our hearts go out to the community, and we're dedicated to keeping the spotlight on the needs of the people affected by this disaster. With this in mind, we're currently working on a podcast that delves into the aftermath of the derailment, ensuring that the voices of the East Palestine community are heard.

In addition to the podcast, we're also in pre-production for a documentary film that will explore the impact of the derailment on the community and the environment. Our goal is to raise awareness and facilitate a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by the people of East Palestine in the wake of this tragic event.

As we embark on this new chapter, we're grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the community we hold dear. We look forward to sharing our passion for storytelling with you and making a positive difference through the power of media.

Stay tuned for more updates on our projects, and thank you for joining us on this exciting journey!

Warm Regards,

Jarid Watson

Co-founder, Calliope
