MICHAEL

CERBELLI 

CEO & President at Cerbelli Creative

Michael's Bio

For over 43 years, Michael has done more than change the paradigm of prestigious happenings – Michael has become the paradigm. Michael’s recent multi-million-dollar ‘Brooklyn Bar-Mitzvah’ at the Barclay Center grabbed the attention of the worldwide press from CNN to the BBC. Still, Michael’s passion is to do more than create incredible experiences. He would much rather be ‘giving back’ to the event community than fielding calls from the press.
