Blair loved cartoons as a kid and was lucky enough to find his way to Sheridan College in Oakville after high school. From there he took his first job at Crawley Films in Ottawa before making his way to Vancouver to start up Studio B Productions with his colleague Chris Bartleman. The studio went on to produce over 1000 half hours that sold in over 100 countries worldwide on networks such as Disney, Nickleodeon, Cartoon Network, Teletoon, YTV and the BBC. After 20 year in business that saw the Studio receive numerous awards, the pair sold the company to media giant DHX Media in 2007. Blair stayed with the company until 2011. He now consults for creators, studios and broadcasters in Canada and abroad.

Blair has been involved in the animation industry as a layout artist, storyboard artist, art director, director, creative producer and executive producer for such companions as Disney, Nickelodeon, Warner Bros. and Universal. He has created and developed shows and figured out how to finance and sell them. Shows he has worked on have received prestigious European awards such the Pulcinella and BAFTA, as well as the Shaw Rocket Prize and numerous Leo Awards here in Canada. Blair was named a Top 40 under 40 Entrepreneur of the Year, Lion's Gate Producer of the Year and was most recently awarded the DHX Media Award for Excellence in Animation.
