About the Hosts

Maccabee Griffin Profile Photo

Maccabee Griffin

Host and Voice Actor

After being medically retired from the US Army, I decided to go back to school and get a degree in Supply Chain Management. However, life had a different plan for me, and I left college to work full-time and take care of my family. And then, two years ago, someone told me to stop doing things that leave me unhappy at the end of the day. So while still working a full-time manufacturing job, I began to redevelop my acting skills and start training my voice again to become a voice-over actor. After buying everything I needed for a home studio and creating professional demo reels, I began to audition for various projects and market myself to local and national businesses. Over time I began to build my portfolio and create a bond with clients worldwide. Today I'm a full-time voice-over actor and podcast host who uses his voice and a network of creative specialists to help authors get the audience they genuinely desire. We want everyone, both author and reader, to go Beyond the Pen.
