George Buza was born in Cleveland, Ohio, US and became a Canadian citizen in 1998. When Buza was a child he was fascinated with the thriller movies and his grandfather took him to see plenty of them. Buza stands 6'4" tall and is an avid motorcyclist and a weightlifter (lifts every day). Additionally he likes rock hounding and stamp collecting ("People might snicker about my stamp collecting, but I've been doing it since I was five," he says. "I'm at the point where I exhibit internationally. My grandfather is Hungarian and he used to design stamps. I find it very relaxing.") Buza is married to accountant Hope Buza and he has a stepson, Derek, who is a rock musician.
