Adam Lisbon

Country Representative (USA1)


I was an ALT in Kobe-shi, Hyogo-ken from 2004-07. Since then I've been involved with JETAA for nearly 15 years! My best memory from JET was visiting a "cow wishing" shrine in Okayama prefecture, Tagura Ushi Jinja. I got my wish and ended up working in a job where I get to use my Japanese every day.

Today, I'm the Japanese & Korean Studies Librarian at the University of Colorado Boulder. Where I focus on knowledge management, automation, and research methodologies. When I'm not nerding out at the library, I'm probably training to one day run my first 100 mile (160km) race. On the other hand, I'm also an avid gamer and hope you might want to join my Minecraft server sometime.
