I've been a Seattle radio mainstay since joining the legendary variety music station 103.7 The Mountain in the 1990s. During my epic run there, I hosted the morning show, the afternoon show, and hundreds of live performances and interviews with artists ranging from David Bowie and Paul Simon to Adele and Death Cab for Cutie. I chatted with countless celebs and newsmakers. Off-air, I conceived and wrote creative copy for broadcast, social media, the web, and special projects like the iconic Mountain Music Lounge CDs. I led the station's first steps onto the internet. And in my spare time, in those early days of the net, I helped launch Microsoft's Music Central website, writing and producing all kinds of content. And I co-hosted Expedia Radio, a nationally syndicated travel show.
I love the audio medium, whether it's radio or a podcasting or singing in the shower, so I hope I'll always host some kind of show, somewhere. I love music, talking to musicians, discovering new artists, and sharing all of that with others. Working from home is great (especially when you're a parent.) But I love collaboration and the energy of a creative environment where brilliant ideas -- and the people who come up with them --can mix and mingle, whether it's a radio station, a writers room, a recording studio, a conference room or a coffee shop.

voice artist, radio host, writer, interviewer, producer, music guru
Now I'm a freelance voice artist working from a home studio where I specialize in radio/TV commercials and narration for corporate video projects, both internal and public-facing. I'm a writer, too, with a knack for social media, customer contact, and internal communications. I'm also on the air pretty regularly at Warm 106.9 in Seattle.
And I'm a painter! My style is contemporary graphic abstract (if you have to put a label on it) and you can take a look at johnfisherimages.com.
Oh yeah -- I'm also the father of a 5-year old kid, so I spend a big part of my day trying not to screw him up too much.
