I'm Lisa Hirsch. I'm a technical writer by day; I work for a company whose products you've probably used. I'm trying to get back to my jujitsu practice after a several-years-long hiatus. I started Chen style Tai Chi in January, 2010.
By night I am a part-time music critic and blogger. I review regularly for San Francisco Classical Voice and irregularly for various other publications. I blog at Iron Tongue of Midnight, primarily about classical music, but with forays into leftist politics, public health, and sundry other things that strike my fancy. I have a home page where I rant about various subjects of interest.
It is probable that I have more Wagner recordings than you do.
