A native Oregonian, Buzz attended the University of Washington in Seattle where he earned a bachelor's degree in atmospheric science while also studying creative writing. After leaving active duty with the Air Force, he and his wife Christina lived in New England and suffered through its winters for two decades before heading for the milder climate of Roswell, Georgia, near Atlanta. It's much warmer there!
