Originally from Belcarra, British Columbia, Canada, Kyle MacDonald has planted more than one hundred thousand trees, delivered more than one thousand pizzas, but eaten only one scorpion. He has also traded one red paperclip for a house only once.

He coordially invites you to edit his wikipedia bio as creatively as you desire.

When he's not stealing a flag from the Prime Minister's office or promoting Alberta Beef by hitch-hiking in a parade, you might find him leaving his wallet in El Segundo or hanging out in Bangkok modeling Italian Soccer jerseys to fund 4am Red-Bull and Rum-fueled urban hitchhikes. He also enjoys writing third-person bio pages for his website and loves to stand on street corners in Montreal hawking shoddily-bound English literature to Francophones in sub-zero temperatures.

His mom still cuts his hair.

I'm not entirely sure if you ARE the red paperclip guy...I remember a while ago my mother telling me about a guy who had swapped a paperclip for a house which bugged my thoughts for ages! So if this is you, I'm pleased to sort-of-online meet you! If this isn't well...hi.

But here's my email :

Talk one day? You seem a pretty interesting guy. I found this through :-)

So good luck with, and maybe mail me some time!

Hi! My boyfriend has your book! I hadn't heard of you until a few weeks ago, but what a great story. My mother is from Weyburn, Saskatchewan and my father from Moose Jaw. I live in Ottawa, Canada. If this is your real blog, that is great! It was totally by mistake that I came across it.
I'm going to pass the URL along to some friends who know about the red paperclip story as well!
