Giorgio A. Tsoukalos


Giorgio A. Tsoukalos is a Swiss-born Greek writer and television personality. He is a proponent of the idea that ancient alien astronauts interacted with ancient humans.  He was the publisher of Legendary Times magazine, which featured articles from Erich von Däniken, David Hatcher Childress, Peter Fiebag, Robert Bauval, and Luc Bürgin on the topic of ancient astronauts and related subject matter.

Tsoukalos is the director of Erich von Däniken's Center for Ancient Astronaut Research (the A.A.S. R.A.—Archaeology, Astronautics and SETI Research Association), and has appeared on The Travel Channel, The History Channel, the Sci-Fi Channel, the National Geographic Channel, as well as Coast to Coast AM, and is a consulting producer of the television series Ancient Aliens.

Tsoukalos is a 1998 graduate of Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York, with a bachelor's degree in sports information and communication. For several years in the early 2000s, before he made ancient astronaut research his primary career, he served as a bodybuilding promoter in IFBB sanctioned contests, including Mr. Olympia. He is fluent in English, Greek, German, French, and Italian.

Tsoukalos is the host of the H2 series In Search of Aliens, which premiered on July 25, 2014
