Redwoods and Rivers, California and Me

As a one year old, I fell asleep in an inflatable canoe and was almost lost on the Eel River. True story. Our family dog, a chocolate Lab (the most loyal of all Labrador varieties), saved me by pulling the line back to shore. Perhaps this is where my fearless trust of nature stems. It […]

June Editor’s Letter Part Two: A Promise to Current and Future Bob Cut Employees

June has been a reckoning—a reckoning for BIPOC. A reckoning for Black Trans men and women. A reckoning of how we treat people in this country. And though June may be over, the fight is not. The United States, California, and the Bay Area have a lot of steps to take (and we mean a […]

February Editor’s Letter: Let’s Fall In Love

If February isn’t a cold hard reminder that you are loved—well, let me tell you now. But this editor’s letter isn’t a bout of self-love. On the contrary, it’s about falling in love. A ghastly topic that doesn’t seem to get as much star-studded recognition. But it’s true. When I started Bob Cut in 2015, […]

January Editor’s Letter: Charge The Batteries

As you read this, do note that I am currently in Hawaii relaxing beach side, with a Mai Tai in hand, and a very handsome man at my left. Life couldn’t be sweeter. But I don’t inform you of this location based hurrah because I’m #blessed—moreover, it’s my first real vacation in a year and […]

December Editor’s Letter: Of The New Decade

I’ve been thinking a lot about the events that have led me to where this magazine is now—I believe I both have had it easy and had it hard. I credit our victories with the hard realities that had to follow pre and post celebration, it’s a fine balance of wanting to scream from the […]

November Editor’s Letter: Goodbye, Farewell

Is there a new and interesting way to say goodbye? I’ve been mulling this over for a few weeks now, knowing that I would need to step up to the plate and say it: that resonating, final goodbye. Looking through my past Editor’s Letters to you fine folk, I noticed I’ve written about goodbyes—in some […]

August Editor’s Letter—Summer Eulogy

If you know me and know Bob Cut, you probably most definitely also know that it’s time for my yearly Summer Eulogy. A silly yet deeply earnest love letter to the most perfectly crafted, fickle as hell season of them all.  I have been a summer person since I have been a person. Maybe it’s […]

The July Editor’s Letter: It’s Intern Season

Picture this: it’s Friday night and it’s been a hell of a week. Something has just been aggravating you. No other way to say it. Irritation coming at you from all sides. Is it the current political climate? Well, it’s perpetually that, but this time it’s something else, too. Is it the city air, polluted, […]

The May Editor’s Letter: On Endings

Game of Thrones finished out its final season this month, so like any culture obsessed, Jon Snow loving fool, I’ve been thinking a lot about endings. I started with Thrones. How do I feel now that it’s over? (Terrible and betrayed.) But also, this: Why did this hit me so hard? In my own defense, […]

The Joan: The April Editor’s Letter

If you ask for “The Joan” at The Riddler down in Hayes Valley, on the corner of Laguna and Linden, they’ll fill your wine glass up to the damn top. I mean, to the tip-top. I mean, so tip top that you’ll gasp a little as they finish off the pour. I love watching people […]
