    From his official CBS Survivor: Borneo bio page:

     

    "Born in Plano, Texas, Greg Buis is one of four siblings (two brothers and a sister). He studied anthropology at Brown University, graduating in 1999. He is currently based in Gold Hill, Colorado, although he continues to travel around the world. He has lived in Ridgewood, New Jersey; Providence, Rhode Island; Boulder, Colorado; Santa Barbara, California and Australia. Along the way, he has been employed as a survival skill program director, boat mechanic, a stone mason and a restaurant manager.

     

    Greg describes himself as energetic, hardworking and dedicated. His favorite color is green and he loves the smell of a pine forest. He says his perfect day would entail stalking a wild animal slowly and quietly enough to surprise it by touching it. His birth date is Dec. 31, 1975."
