This was a dope interview, with CEO of 12.26 Studios, Christian Benjamin. 12.26 Studios creates advanced marketing campaigns for a variety of brands, startups, non-profits and products. From being adopted, to playing football at Bowie State University, to inspiring youth and being instrumental in the growth of his clients’ brands, Christian has a great story.
There was also mention of his membership in The Stable, a collection of football graduates from DuVal High School in Lanham, Maryland who went on to success in college and the NFL.
We took jabs back and forth about the memorable, 2005 CIAA Football Championship game between the Bowie State Bulldogs and my alma mater, North Carolina Central University. He brought up a fact to me, NCCU may have cheated…
He broke down the meaning of his company’s logo, which integrates a heart and a clock, and the significance of 12.26.
This was definitely one of my favorite episodes to record so far!
