Born in Champaign, Illinois, Robert Barhite grew up in Waukon, Iowa, and has always had an intense interest in Bigfoot and exploring the great outdoors. His first expedition was the 2012 BFRO Iowa Hill Country Expedition led by Steve Moon. In addition, he’s attended organized numerous expeditions in the Midwest.
Beside group expeditions, he has conducted numerous solo research trips in Iowa and Wisconsin, and for the last two years has been a guest lecturer at the request of the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, and continues to monitor activity in a long-term study location in the Midwest.
Professionally, Barhite is a member of the MFA-Professional Screenwriting program at National University in La Jolla, California. He is the head writer for a web series that’s under development, and is at the beck and call of his cat who nightly hides his glasses, thereby making him late for work.
