As Walter P Moore's Regional Director in the Northeast, Blair leads structural engineering operations and client development in Washington, D.C., New York City, and Toronto. Heavily inspired by his father, also a structural engineer, Blair is passionate about engineering because of its ability to improve people’s lives. Having designed and delivered projects for large airports, healthcare systems, and public assembly venues, he is one of few structural engineers in the country to have spent 20+ years focusing primarily on the airport market.

Since joining Walter P Moore in 1992, Blair has spent his entire career at the firm, earning many distinguished accolades and founding the firm's Washington, D.C. office in 2008. A Senior Principal, he is a globally recognized expert in aviation structures and has led the firm's dynamic aviation practice for two decades. Blair is a registered professional engineer in the District of Columbia and Georgia, and holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of South Florida.
