Blair grew up on the family farm in rural South West Victoria, not far from Mount Gambier. He was educated at local public schools before graduating from Monash University with degrees in Arts and Law in 2005. It was at University in 2000 that Blair met his wife, Catherine, with whom he has three daughters. Blair completed his articled clerkship in 2006 and practiced as a solicitor for a short period of time.
In 2011 Blair and Catherine moved to Adelaide where Blair worked as Chief of Staff to Minister Jennifer Rankine. After Jennifer’s retirement from Cabinet, Blair began work for Premier Jay Weatherill.

Deputy Chief of Staff to Hon J Weatherill MP
Blair lives in the North East with his family. When he has time he enjoys playing basketball, watching the footy, listening to music, taking the kids bike riding and spending time on the family farm. He is also a volunteer with the Salisbury SES Unit.
Blair is particularly passionate about education and believes that a strong, affordable and accessible public education system is the key to equality. He believes that meaningful, dignified, work is the bedrock of our society and should be available to all South Australians, regardless of their means or background.
Blair’s upbringing in a rural environment has instilled in him a love of the country and an appreciation of the rewards that come from hard work and persistence. He is aware of the privilege that life has granted him and is determined to do his utmost to extend to all South Australians the opportunity to make the most of their talents and aspirations.
