Born in Vancouver, British Columbia to an English father,[1] Fisk played for a host of local clubs before joining Vancouver Whitecaps FC's youth setup in 2006. He made his senior debuts in 2011, playing for the club's under-23 squad.

On April 16, 2013 Fisk was loaned to Charleston Battery until the end of the season.[2] He returned to Whitecaps in August, after scoring twice and assisting to a further three goals in nine appearances, being also called up to the main squad for the 2014 pre-season.[3]

Coruxo[edit]

On August 8, 2014 Fisk signed a one-year deal with Spanish Segunda División B side Coruxo FC.[4] He scored his first goals for the club on April 2 of the following year, netting a hat-trick in a 3–1 away win against CD Tropezón.[5]

Deportivo la Coruna B[edit]

On August 11, 2015 Fisk joined Deportivo de La Coruña, being assigned to the reserves in Tercera División.[6] Fisk was released by the club in June 2016 after one year.[7]

FC Edmonton[edit]

On July 28, 2016, Fisk signed with FC Edmonton of the North American Soccer League.[8]

International career[edit]

After appearing with the Canada under-20s, Fisk was called up to the main squad for friendlies against Bulgaria and Moldova, but remained as an unused substitute in both matches. He also appeared with the under-23s at the 2015 Pan American Games.[9]

In May 2016, Fisk was called to Canada's U23 national team for a pair of friendlies against Guyana and Grenada.[10] He scored in the match against Guyana.[11]
