Employee Spotlight: Blair Scott
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.
