Whether your family has been here for generations or you’ve just recently moved to the States… what makes us unique is that we’re a melting pot or a combination of different cultures. No other place in the world can match that. Having been born here I’m fortunate enough to be able to combine the tradition of the Egyptian culture with the American culture.
My name is Marc Philobos, I’m a first generation American / Egyptian who grew up in the great state of New Jersey, did a little stint in San Francisco, CA (5 years), and I’d love to share some my fun family stories with you. Some context, if you’ve ever seen the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” then you’ve just met my family… well almost… except they’re Egyptian and from the other side of Mediterranean. They’re just as fun, loving, welcoming, and crazy 🙂 … But whose family isn’t, right?
My Dad and I counted once and we had 125 people over for Christmas… No joke.
As you can probably imagine the language barriers, cultural differences and generational gaps make for some great stories. My hope is that you can sit back, relax, laugh, and enjoy our videos. Who knows? Maybe one day you’ll feel compelled to share a funny story of yours with me and we’ll bring it to life.
We’re a nation of immigrants!!
