Yabe was born in New York but grew up in Tokyo, where she trained in violin and taught herself guitar. She was pre- med at Pomona College but got involved in the music scene in nearby Los Angeles, playing in a few sessions and producing music. After graduating, she moved to New York City to pursue a career in the arts and entertainment industry. Broadening her search, Yabe met a network post-producer at an alumni event who told her that a company was looking to fill an entry-level position in television post-production. She got the gig — transcribing interviews for producers on the reality crime series The First 48 (2004-present) for ITV Studios (formerly Granada Entertainment) — and eventually joined the Editors Guild as an edit room assistant, the equivalent to an apprentice on the West Coast. >>> She's Got the Music in Her Mitsuko Alexandra Yabe
