B.C.: Auburn, CA. A small town known for Ikeda’s burgers. I’ve never had one, which blows people’s minds.
Favorite childhood toy?
B.C.: Star Wars and GI Joe action figures. Plus a red Sharpie for realistic battle wounds. More than once Han Solo found himself frozen in a glass of water in our freezer, too.
Where’d you go to school?
B.C.: University of Nevada, Reno.
B.C.: Kids: My parents wish. Dogs: A smiling Dalmatian named Oscar who thinks he is our child.
Why’d you get into this business?
B.C.: Since I was young, I’ve loved writing, creating stories and solving creative problems. In fact, as my mom will tell you while shaking her head, I spent my childhood plaguing the world with jingles I invented for various products. Ironically, I now detest jingles—unless they are jingles making fun of being jingles. The real reason I ended up in this business, though, is that a Journalism/Advertising degree seemed like the quickest way out of school.
Favorite place on Earth
B.C.: Anywhere in the Sierras.
If the Internet went down for a week, what would you do?
B.C.: Uhhh … feel joyous despair?
If you could make an App that did whatever you wanted, what would that be?
B.C.: Teleportation App. Also known as the BeemMeUpScotty App. Perfect for avoiding the grumpy old guy who frisks you at airport security.
What would you be doing if you weren’t in this business?
B.C.: Wondering what this business was like.
What's your favorite quote of all time?
What’s your Porn Name (Name of your first pet combined with the street you grew up on.)?
B.C.: Blackie Reemer. Yeah, seriously.
A few random thoughts related to this business?
I love it.
I hate it.
I LOVE it.
Something people probably don’t know about you.
B.C.: My last name should actually be Skaggs. Whew.
