Do you have a secret swimming hole (or favorite)? tell us about it.
I once went to this abandoned quarry filled with rain water outside of Pondicherry. It had a ledge to jump from and a little island in the middle.

What is your go-to picnic fare?
hmm… I would probably bring an everything bagel with cream cheese and lox. Also an iced coffee.

Describe your dream summer ootd (outfit of the day).
Loose palazzos with an embroidered crop top and platformed sandals.

Desert Island music?
Amy Winehouse.

What will you be reading this summer vacation?
Right now I’m reading a book called English, August by Upamanyu Chatterjee and next on my list is Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig.

What’s got you on your soapbox lately?
I haven’t been on my soapbox so much lately. Being in India, I’ve felt removed from the political drama unfolding in the US. I’ve been more observant of what’s going on here, trying to wrap my head around a culture that’s so different. I’m definitely not in the place to be standing on my soapbox.

Tell us about something you recently learned.
I learned about a gorgeous silk produced in Assam. It’s called Muga silk and it has a natural gold color. It also gets shinier with every wash.

Current obsession?
I’ve been listening to these playlists called Chances with Wolves while working in studio and they’re amazing. They have different wolf pictures for each episode too.

Who is your art crush?
Kiernan Pazdar.
