  • Category: Author

Robert Proudfoot was born and raised in Edmonton, but his life was enriched by cross-cultural experiences in Africa when, during the early 1970s, he completed high-school and studied at the University of Zambia; and later worked as an agro-forester in Nigeria from 1988 to 1991. As an environmental scientist, Robert writes technical documents, but he also follows his passion for creative writing.

Aside from self-publishing in 2019 Enduring Art, Active Fact: 3 Generations Create - a collection of poetry, short stories, essays, and art work created by three generations of his family - Robert published 35 essays in various church, community or professional magazines since 1980. He also researched and wrote the historical backgrounder for a DVD commemorating First Mennonite Church's 50th anniversary in 2009.
