Before Eric Fisk became a Graphic Design student at Mount Wachusett Community College (MWCC) he was a self-taught web developer, teaching himself HTML, CSS and Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and was the host of “The Fedora Chronicles.”
Before starting The Fedora Chronicles in 2004, Mr. Fisk has filled many roles…
As a subversive writer for the publication “The Underground Quarterly” he was denied access into the former Soviet Union by the KGB. He was supposed to visit Moscow and several towns in the once communist country via a school trip hosted by the Brattleboro Union High School in 1987. After a brief background check it was made clear that the then-17 year old was considered a serious risk to that country’s stability. Regardless, The Soviet Union still collapsed in 1991 while Eric Fisk was seeking further education as a digital draftsman and designer in Upstate New York. He claims he had nothing to do with the end of the USSR.
After being released from The Via Condotti Culinary Institute for the Terminally Insane, he traveled back and forth across the country in search of “The True America,” and enrolled in other colleges and university to study art, astronomy, post-modern cowbell ringing with the legendary Gene Frenkle before his untimely death in 2000.
Before settling once again in New England where he met his wife and muse, Carol Truesdell, he worked as the Document Control officer of a medical manufacturing company while studying Multi-Media design at UMass Lowell.
Eric Fisk is now the proud father of two young sons, owner of two beautiful full-bread mongrel dogs, and owns the finest collection of Hewlett-Packard laptops and monitors that rivals the collection of Charles Foster Kane’s snow globes.
