Listen to this episode at the links below:
Nicholas Coolridge, AKA Modern Tarzan, is a true Movement Artist from his combined love of movement and capturing it via photographs or video, mostly by himself with a camera setup on a tripod and a timer.
Many will know Nicholas from his truly positive, and simplistic lifestyle. He is one of little possessions and has lived in a van he modified into a home for a good portion of his adult life.
Before his movement career Nicholas grew up building house with his Dad (Paul) and was studying in college to be an auto mechanic.
Movement and media were just a past time hobby until one of his first youtube videos went viral, serving as the initial spark that led him to devote his life to his love of movement and photography with a passion for Parkour, Climbing, and Acro Yoga.
He also loves spending his time traveling the world, playing the piano, exploring nature, cooking fresh food, or fixing things.
Although by birth his name is Nicholas, most now refer to him as Modern Tarzan (or just Tarzan for short) while some may not even know his real name!
You won’t have to hang out with him long to see that he truly embodies the nickname with a touch of sophisticated wisdom and love for technology. In this episode, we dive into the inside story of how Modern Tarzan built a career of passion, purpose, and adventure with his passion for movement, creative photography, and love for sharing his art with the world.
