HI, I'M AARON.
The Modern Otter started from a passion to tell the stories behind fashion. It's easy to throw up a few photos, but I care about who made it, where the fabric came from, what inspired the design or what trend it embodies. Every piece of clothing tells a story and I think it's important to know that story.
That sounds lofty, I know. But The Modern Otter is really just a place of discovery. A site for us to find cool places and things and talk about them.
A little about me: I currently live in New York City but have lived in California, Arizona and UpState(ish) New York. My background is in theatre and costume design, but I spent 10 years as a merchandising manager for a major retailer. Now I'm blogging and advising full time!
Always packing for the next great adventure!
All photos on the site are taken by my fiancé, Michael Georgen, unless stated otherwise in the post.
