Hi, I’m Kyle Pearce.
I’m passionate about learning, creativity and exploring the world.
I started DIY Genius in 2011 to explore the future of education and empower a new generation that is educating themselves using the Internet.
I believe that we live in a golden age of learning where anyone can educate themselves using the Internet.
With DIY Genius, I help creative people like you get more focused on your talents and craft while maintaining the long-term passion and self-motivation necessary to make a living doing work you enjoy.
The Story of DIY Genius:
Why I Love To Teach:
I love to teach, inspire and entertain and I’m thankful for being able to teach and mentor students while having the flexibility to work from anywhere I am in the world.
I think I’m a good teacher because of highly curious and I love to learn. I spend my free time exploring futurism, studying forest ecology, meditating, hosting events and parties, and experiencing flow in nature hiking, skiing, mountain biking, and surfing.
I have spoken at conferences, startup incubators and run educational bootcamps across North America, Latin America and Asia about the future of education, applying flow psychology in creative industries, brand storytelling for creative leaders and the vital importance of focused and disciplined self-directed learning in today’s fast-changing world.
I started my first website and online business selling online in 2003 with a surf clothing label called Grandpa Sunshine.
I started working in digital marketing in 2009 and I’ve worked getting small businesses owners to #1 on Google for premium local keywords, launching the fitness app Fitplan that has been downloaded over a million times, and doing social video marketing for big telecommunications and technology companies such as Dell, ASUS, TELUS, HP, and Toshiba.
I am a full-stack marketer, which means I can code, design websites, optimize for conversions, run performance-driven ad campaigns, design curriculum and implement scalable marketing automation systems.
I have a degree in ancient and modern history from the University of Victoria and I’ve spent much of my adult life studying ancient history, religion, philosophy, and cultures all over the world with teachers from many different traditions while traveling in the winters.
