Talal Ghannam was born in Aleppo, Syria. He spent all of his childhood and youth there where he got his bachelor degree in mechanical engineering. He then moved to UAE and then
to the US where he got his master and Ph.D. in physics. From there he went
to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where he worked in the research field. Recently,
he has moved to Canada where he was able to polish his drawing skills as
to finally finish his first Maroof comic story.
Besides his scientific career, Talal’s first passion was and still is history,
especially the mysterious and conspiracy aspect of it. He hopes to include
important information, which he has learned and discovered from his history
research, in the Chronicles of Maroof series, information that are essential in understanding the Arabian and world history, and its ramifications into our recent times.
Besides Maroof and various scientific papers, Talal published a nonfiction book, first and second editions, which examines numbers in a very fundamental and unique way. The book title is The Mystery of Numbers: Revealed through their Digital Root.
Talal is married and has two children.
