Inside our team
Blair has been working on web projects since the days of the Mosaic browser. (that was in 1993 for those of you that didn’t know that!)
Today we are building websites and digital marketing solutions for small businesses, bringing enterprise professionalism to those that might not be able to afford it otherwise.
We are all humans after all. Get to know more about me.
Born and raised in northern Toronto, Blair’s claim to fame is that he went to highschool with Alex Liefson of Rush. After skiing the Rocky Mountains on a spring break, Blair migrated west at the first opportunity. Working at Alberta Gas Trunkline, that became NOVA, that became TC Energy, Blair learnt about professional behaviour, delivering as promised, and how to value and respect your fellow workers.
Blair worked for NOVA in field operations, and later as part of the Compression Engineering team, where he learnt earned value analysis project management (on an IBM XT), taught personal computing skills and became one of the first Project Managers in the IT department. At the same time he started a grassroots intranet, with over 50 web authors and hundreds of pages. (Writing HTML in notepad was fun!) Since then Blair has managed numerous intranet projects, website projects, and application rollouts.
Blair is passionate about the power of the individual, and has been called an “encouragement dispenser” by some that know him well. Assembling high performing teams from such individuals is his greatest passion, and this is seen in his devotion to the One Day Web Group, his commitment as Race Director for the Banff Jasper Relay, a nationally respected event that has taken place from 2005 to 2019, and his membership in BNI Vibe since February 2019.

When not working, Blair’s interests are visiting family and friends, distance running, riding his 2018 Kawasaki Z900RS, restoring a 1968 VW Beetle, and attending Centre Street Church.
