Tony Cerbone

I grew up outside New York City, where I attended Manhattan College with concentrations in Marketing and Finance. My career began as an Account Manager for an email marketing agency, learning their marketing strategies and client services from some of the best in the business. After climbing the corporate ladder, I felt that there was so much more to learn and it couldn't be done sitting behind my desk.

I was blessed with the opportunity to travel Europe and visit 17 countries within five months in 2013. Throughout my travels I met amazing people and learned more about myself and the world than I could have ever imagined. My website backpacktheglobe.com was created to assist others with their travel plans and packing needs. Please feel free to send me comments or questions, and I will do my best to give you some advice for your holiday!


My travels forced me to meet people with different cultures and backgrounds, which assists me when working with others in the workplace. As I now continue my career in account management, I have applied my travel experiences to my company and team to create a more divertisfied culture.
