He earned his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1989 while also running multiple restaurants that he co-founded. These became his unofficial "minor" in business.

In 2013, Mr. Fisher became afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis. In 2016, he left the country to undergo an Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (bone marrow transplant). By all accounts, the procedure was a success, stopping his MS. He was even able to reverse a good deal of the damage that the disease had caused. To this day, however, neuropathic pain remains his primary symptom.
