Blair has worked across numerous sectors including finance, post-production, travel, advertising, and education. Throughout this time he noticed the need for improving data literacy across industry.
Combining statistical rigour with industry knowledge, Blair teaches through realistic application. This gives students a firm understanding that the world isn’t a sterile environment and things don’t necessarily go as planned – giving students a grounded, pragmatic approach to solving real-world problems.
Blair’s drive comes from the importance of neurodiversity in the classroom and workplace. Everyone learns and thinks differently – following this concept allows problems to be approached from a variety of different angles.
Outside of Digital Futures, Blair writes and plays music in a heavy metal band.
