R&S

What do you love most about your work?

Sukhinder

I love the mix of creativity and technology and the chance to exercise all my passions in one place. I can go from a meeting where I review our editorial and upcoming fashion picks, to giving feedback on an expert or video, to talking about how our video player and content needs to get more personalized. 

R&S

One piece of advice you would give your 18 year old self:

Sukhinder

Relax '- it will all work out and you will end up where you’re supposed to be. BTW – Im still giving my current self the same advice!

R&S

The pair of jeans you will never grow tired of:

Sukhinder

Skinny black DL1961s that go with absolutely everything

R&S

Your motto in life:

Sukhinder

You’ll never know if you don’t try.  

R&S

The trend you hope never goes out of style:

Sukhinder

Platform pumps – I always wear heels so that extra platform helps so much. But I think I’ve already lost that battle based on my own recent purchases…

R&S

Charities you support:

Sukhinder

Two that I’m passionate about include: Jobtrain – the largest vocational training program here in the bay area that helps troubled adults and youth get back on their feet – and Center for Reproductive Rights – an amazing group of lawyers who every day help protect women’s rights around the globe by taking on state and federal laws that are harmful to our freedoms. 

R&S

Your (real life) hero:

Sukhinder

My father – unquestionably the most amazing human, humanitarian, and leader I’ve ever witnessed 

R&S

Your current Netflix addiction:

Sukhinder

New Season of House of Cards of course. I love that they release all the episodes at once as we are clearly binge-watchers.

R&S

Midnight snack of choice:

Sukhinder

Phish food from Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream. Still a favorite after all these years and worth getting in the car for. 

R&S

Your favorite restaurant for brunch and your go-to order:

Sukhinder

My favorite restaurant for brunch, lunch or dinner is the Slanted Door in San Francisco. Favorite go-to order is their Grapefruit Jicama Salad – always.
