Biography

Kyle MacDonald has planted more than one hundred thousand trees, delivered more than one thousand pizzas, and eaten a scorpion. He has also traded one red paperclip for a house. Running with the idea of taking one small item and attempting to trade it for something bigger and more substantial, he has become renowned for his offbeat and inspirational ideas and goals.

In July 2005, after 14 trades, Mr. MacDonald successfully traded one red paperclip for a house. His yearlong adventure in bartering includes trading for a doorknob, a Coleman stove, a ski-doo, a moving van, a music-recording contract, an afternoon spent hanging out with Alice Cooper, a movie role, and finally, a house. The stories that have come from these adventures are impressive, but Mr. MacDonald’s generosity, free spirit, and willingness to look for the positive in things is what makes his story significant.

Mr. MacDonald has spoken to thousands all over the world about the lessons that he learned from trading a red paperclip to a house. He has been interviewed by 20/20, The Today Show, Good Morning America, MSNBC, BBC, CBS, CNN, City TV, Global, USA Today, Maclean’s, The New York Times, The New York Post, In Touch magazine, VH1, MTV, The National Examiner, Reader’s Digest, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and The Toronto Star, to name a few.

Kyle MacDonald’s adventures are not over; when he is not stealing a flag from the Prime Minister's office or promoting Alberta Beef by hitchhiking in a parade, you might find him leaving his wallet in El Segundo or hanging out in Bangkok modeling Italian Soccer jerseys.
