Employee Spotlight: Blair Scott

by Oct 27, 2017

Where are you from?

Born in Cleve­land, Ohio, grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio. I work remotely from Akron, Ohio.

Two random facts about you:

I saw The Force Awakens 13 times in the theaters. I also have a very deep obses­sion with trailer music.

What are your hobbies outside of work?

For the last 4 years I’ve been attend­ing about half of the Cleve­land Cava­lier games and I play a lot of Halo. Recently though I’ve taken to candle making and have even started my own candle busi­ness. It’s an incred­i­bly fun hobby and I’m happy to have the oppor­tu­nity to learn about running a busi­ness at the same time.

What super­hero power would you have and why?

As I am a huge Star Wars fan, I would have to say I’d like to be a Force user. I would love to have a lightsaber, but that’s not really a super­power, so unfor­tu­nately I’d prob­a­bly have to lean towards the dark side so I can use some of that cool light­ning.

Favorite place in Atlanta and Cleve­land?

Having been to Atlanta several times I’m pretty fond of O‑ku and Ormsby’s. In Cleve­land, I really love being at Cavs games so Quicken Loans Arena is like a second home to me.

You can only eat one food for the rest of your life. What is it?

Most people that know me would assume I would say steak here. That would be a very reason­able guess however if I had to pick one food it would be the biscuits and gravy from Lucky’s cafe here in Cleve­land.

What are four things you can’t live without?

Family, friends, purpose, and Halo.

Why do you think digital intel­li­gence is impor­tant?

Digital intel­li­gence to me is one of the most impact­ful ways a company gain mean­ing­ful insights about them­selves. In the last year I’ve been fasci­nated by all the things we’ve helped compa­nies do. Data is amaz­ingly useful, but getting the right types of data and telling the appro­pri­ate story with it is even more useful and impor­tant. I think we do that extremely well here.

What’s your favorite thing about working at Search Discovery?

It’s a cliche answer I know, but I really enjoy the people. Not only do I work with some of the most passion­ate people in the indus­try but also some of the most talented.
