Eric Fisher is a storyteller turned product architect, passionate about designing social systems that bring people together in meaningful conversation and community.

I'm a unique hybrid. On one hand, I'm a naturally structured, objective and spatial thinker, which inclines me towards layout, architecture, development and organization in general. But my primary passion and personality is in the artistic and emotional realm, pushing me to explore many forms of media, communication and storytelling: acting, improv, evangelizing, teaching, writing, journalism, film, animation, graphics, etc. I've found a happy mix of the two worlds in "social design."

In my early career, I was the social design evangelist at Facebook, where I educated companies on how to create trustworthy social apps, promoted the platform and designed main product components like News Feed stories and Friend Lists. Before that, I worked at Google, designing the original KnowledgeGraph which yields structured data from search queries. Out of college, I worked on the technology evangelism / developer relations teams at Apple, where I devised interface guidelines and design concepts for building iPhone applications. I have also independently advised smaller companies (including Milo, Airbnb, Eventbrite and Vice) to help define and build brand into their product design strategy.

Because of my multi-faceted interests and personality, I'm better suited for roles where I can wear many hats and think holistically about product design strategy. Since leaving the bigger companies, I built my own proprietary social platform called Voxle which provides community builders (like me!) all the necessary tools to start and grow a scalable and flexible social network with clean design and well-structured data. I use it as the base to our family business, LMTmag.com, as well as my passion project, MiNDFUL iMPROV, a growing community of health and wellness practitioners who champion improv for personal growth and self awareness.

I studied Digital Media Design, Psychology and Fine Arts at the University of Pennsylvania. For my theories and insights on social design, please visit FishoftheBay.com.
