Giorgio A. Tsoukalos (Greek: Γεώργιος Α. Τσούκαλος; born March 19, 1978) is a Swiss-born Greek writer, television personality, and proponent of the idea that ancient astronauts interacted with ancient humans. He was the publisher of the now defunct Legendary Times magazine, that featured articles from Erich von Däniken (Chariots of the Gods?), David Hatcher Childress, Peter Fiebag, Robert Bauval, and Luc Bürgin, on the topic of ancient astronauts.
Tsoukalos has been the director of Erich von Däniken's Center for Ancient Astronaut Research ( the A.A.S. R.A. – Archaeology, Astronautics and SETI Research Association) for over 15 years, 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 claims that he is multilingual, fluent in English, Greek, German, French, and Italian.
