After moving to the United States at the age of 13, Buzz began his career as a penciler at the age of 15 at Blackthorne Publications. Later, working with Neal Adams’ Continuity Studios at the age of 17.

Buzz’s current favorite artists include Adam Hughes, Rags Morales and Alex Ross. “I don’t ever see myself wanting to not be working in the comics industry, it’s one of the greatest American art forms like jazz and baseball” says Buzz.
