Born to a Mexican-American family in a small town in Michigan, Robert E. Hoxie credits his dysfunctional upbringing for his dark sense of humor and ability to tell a family drama. At a young age, he found an appreciation for peculiar and inexplicable human stories from reading history books and watching reruns of Unsolved Mysteries. After learning basic video editing in a high school production class, Robert’s desire to tell stories turned into an unfaltering passion to direct and write his own films.
Sourcing his background as inspiration, his works often deal with sexuality, addiction, and relationships set in rural middle America often exploring a dark, ironic, humorous side of the human condition. His drive and collaborative efforts have resulted in short films, a web series, comic books, a collection of short fiction. His screenplays have been optioned and produced.
His debut novel, Girls I Know, explores the digital age hook up culture.
He studied creative writing at Oakland University and received his MFA in screenwriting at Boston University. He enjoys fishing, harness horse racing, and his two very fat cats.
