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.
