Galorian, also known as the Author with the Banana Smile born on 27, November 1974, is an English author, speaker, and international advisor on creative education to government, non-profits, education, and arts bodies.

Life as a journey

Have you ever had a dream? A wonderful dream? When you have a dream that you don’t let go then you struggle and suffer. It’s painful for everyone around you including yourself!

Galorian is a struggling writer in every definition. His life journey has led him, again and again, to move away from all that he has known. But for him letting go is all about discovering a whole new inspiration and that Life has so much to offer. Curiosity was and still is the sole motivation to guide Galorian during his life’s journey.

Biotechnology of seaweed, land ecology, botanic and parasitology, a window framer, a carpenter, a salesman of cosmetics, a salesman of carpets, a salesman of veterinary products, teaching in high school physics, mathematics, biology, chemistry, guiding and training teenagers, a paramedic, a waiter, a chef, an artist and working with schools, inspiring the younger to find their inner treasure.

And of course a toy and game inventor.

A travelogue

Toward the Sun Islands

“When a man is in love he simply says it. A writer – when he loves, he will dedicate his life to write of it.” In 1999 Galorian has set on a yearlong journey, hitch hiking sail boats. A flame of words has lightened the sky above his burning soul and ever since he is writing.

Becoming a toy and game inventor

Life is a challenge. Opportunities will pass you by, doors will be shut on You. People will steal your glory and crush your hopes. You will push and push. And yet NOTHING WILL HAPPEN

By now Alexander the Great has managed to conquer the world; even a child named Harry Potter has managed to conquer the world; friends get married, have kids, finish their Ph.D. while Galorian…

When you follow your dream it is easy to be well educated and BROKE! It is easy to be a good person and still be lonely!

In 2008 Galorian have made it to Nuremberg Toy fair to present one of his first inventions, a 3D electronic puzzle. A playful event that has led Galorian onward a new adventure toward the kingdom of toys and games.

In end of 2008 Galorian has visited Hong Kong for the first time, coming for a toy show and eventually to stay there for the next 7 years, inventing various toys and games. This was a tough time for the industry as a whole; it was never easy selling anything, especially selling ideas.

Galorian has survived Hong Kong thanks to the friends he made that opened their doors and let him in. “What I have learnt that life’s purpose is to give. THE MORE YOU GIVE THE MORE YOU BECOME”.

NEVER LET THEM CRUSH THAT DREAM. Whatever happens to You, Keep Dreaming. Even when they crush your hopes, Keep Dreaming. Even when they turn you away, Keep Dreaming. Even when they shut you down, Keep Dreaming.

NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF EXCEPT YOURSELF! People will judge You by HOW you look. And by WHAT You have. But please, Fight on! Fight for Your place in history. Fight for your glory. NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

Captain G is born

Life is a journey from one creative peak to another. Each chapter encompasses various adventures and struggles.

Galorian was still playing by the beach, playing with the waves ‘love me, love me not’ and dreaming of adventures he might have gone to, traveling but in his own imagination. “I have tried it all, to discover that I am nothing but a child playing on the sand by the beach.”

This is my story to tell…

Galorian, a global story teller writes with charm and style about the new mindset and the new values we should all follow.

Stories, such as moral stories have the power to shape mankind’s destiny. Some stories have survived time that are able to deliver universal messages transcending generations. This is my story to tell…

By the Author

My hope is to influence and entertain people with various stories and happy Banana Smile events and attractions, and bring positive energy to all through creative media content.

Remember! The material world and all we have in it are only temporary. However, what we do for others will remain for eternity. There is nothing more supreme and noble.

My secret of success is a secret even to me. As man plans and God laughs. Nevertheless, having the right philosophy and attitude is a start.

I believe that some of the characters in my personality as being friendly, curios and having a big imagination are those who define me best.

With playful regards,
