Maurice Griffin

There are two types of people in life: those who express words better verbally and those who express words better written. Maurice L. Griffin is the former. It showed early on in his life—as a B/C student in English, he did what he had to do to get through school and college. But he knew the importance of communication (words can create and or take life, along with everything in between). So much so that this was his major in college—no, not the written form, but verbal expression, studying and eventually starting a career in media. This verbal form has kept him employed for over twenty-five years as a television photographer at a local news station. When Maurice is not shooting video and interviewing people though, you can find him either exercising at his local gym, or in the kitchen cooking for his family. From the latter was born a passion to create his own barbecue sauce: a sweet, tomato-based, ‘Kansas City Style’ barbecue sauce called Jena’s BBQ & Baked Bean Sauce. Jena’s is currently available online and in few specialty stores in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina area. A Michigan native, Maurice has been married to his wife, Ruth, for over 22 years. They reside in North Carolina and have four adult children.
