Professor Fisher taught production at York University for over thirty years and during his tenure served as Department Chair and Production Area coordinator.  He was the founder of the York-Sheridan Joint Degree Program, the student exchange with Northumbria University in Newcastle, England, and the Department’s internship program.  For one year terms, he was a teacher and technical coordinator on the York-Jamia Mass Communications Project in New Delhi, India, and a consultant and teacher in the Film, Sound and Video program at Ngee Ann Polytechnic in Singapore.

In retirement he is working on family history projects and mowing the lawn.
