Master of 5 Languages

Giorgio was born and raised in Switzerland to parents from a Greek-Austrian heritage.

Alien Magazine Editor

Giorgio’s knowledge of ancient history exceeds what we have seen or heard from him on ‘Ancient Aliens.’

He is also the editor and publisher of an online and print magazine called Legendary Times.

It is the only publication in the world that concentrates on the subject of ancient astronaut theory.

Before Ancient Aliens

Before appearing on TV, Giorgio worked as a bodybuilding promoter who also volunteered in the renowned Mr. Olympia bodybuilding contest.

He graduated from Ithaca College in New York with a degree in sports information and communication.

Real UFO Encounter

The man, who has cited crazy theories about aliens visiting the Earth and even having a hand in building the pyramids, had a real UFO encounter in 2014.

He has claimed that he saw the UFOs during the Contact in the Desert Conference at Joshua Tree Retreat Center, California.

Around midnight, he and 26 other people saw stars inside the Big Dipper which began to move before eventually vanishing in the night sky.

Crazy Millionaire

In addition to being a producer and star of Ancient Aliens, he is also the director of Ancient Alien Society.

As crazy as it sounds, his expertise on extraterrestrial beings has made him a certified millionaire, with a whopping $2m as of 2018.
