Summary of Experience
Sakai was a political science major at NYU, but you'd never know it judging by the path her life has taken. She's written hundreds of articles for many different clients on topics ranging from things like how to bounce back from a foreclosure to how to detox from a chocolate binge. She works in television and advertising in NYC as a freelance senior project manager and as a writer-producer, so she understands customer engagement and the magic and power of words. She's passionate about writing and believes that nothing can inspire, create or heal like the perfectly placed word.
Specialties
Sakai loves humor writing and has a knack for injecting her wit into content like blog posts, television promos, creative writing, product descriptions and ads. She writes extensively for the following genres:

* Travel
* Health and Fitness
* Beauty and Fashion
* Home Design
* Garden
* Personal Relationships
* TV and Film
Interests
Sakai is passionate - some might say "a little bit crazy" - about interior design and is frequently called upon by friends to make over rooms in their homes. She'll consider herself to have made it when she is given the keys and asked to do an entire home. Right now, she's content with the single-room jobs she's getting on a pretty regular basis.

She is a member of several writing groups in NYC, including a screenwriters' group and a budding novelists group. Her favorite books are those featuring really sarcastic but really friendly heroes and heroines as well as the types of books that need to be read with all of the lights in the house turned on, even in the daytime.

She has an unhealthy obsession with TV dramas and can often be found watching and dissecting episodes of Dexter, Sherlock Holmes, Luther, The Good Wife and Game of Thrones.
Education
New York University Political Science, BA

Sakai studied political science at NYU. She was certain that she was going to take the LSAT and become a corporate attorney for some tony NY or Washington law firm. While at school, she realized that most of her time was spent hanging out with friends at Tisch school of the Arts. She ended up taking the LSAT, scoring well and working at a corporate law firm as a paralegal for one year. She was reluctantly applying for law schools when she scored the job of a lifetime with Jon Stewart. It was low-paying and had crazy hours and she had the time of her life. She never looked back.
