Christopher Fisk
Technical Services Manager


What he’s all about at SkyPort IT:
Overseeing the technical design and output of Skyport IT and managing the solutions our customers need.

Best part of the job:
Making the tech as enjoyable to use for the customer as it is for me.  If you’re fighting the computer network to get your job done, things are wrong.

Most exciting thing about technology:
I find it amazing how much tech can actually do.  From the simple things like allowing someone to keep up with their email faster by letting them get it on-the-go on a tablet to the more complex where we’re securing data from unauthorized use, the sheer possibilities are fantastic.

Proudest accomplishment:  
Went into a customer site that had lost a server holding important documents, and while doing a site audit, I found a machine that had been configured to cache some of the information to make it run faster.  With some tools I was able to pull the expired cache from that PC and recover a large portion of the files thought lost with the server.

Favorite low-tech activities:
Swimming, roller blading and board games.  There is nothing like a game night with family and friends playing Catan, Ticket to Ride or Telestrations.

Favorite quote:
“In the beginning the Universe was created.  This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.” – Douglas Adams, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

When I’m not busy being an IT hero, I’m busy:
Working with the kids to give them my love of Technology.  There’s a difference between using technology and loving technology.  Catching up on Dr Who.
