About Travel Writer and Golf Writer

Tim Cotroneo AboutTraveling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. Whether I’m writing about an isolated Caribbean island, or how your company is the best option for your customer, my focus is to think like my audience. I write what’s important to my reader while painting a picture through the written word. (I also shoot my own photographs.)

I’d love to discuss your article idea, press trip, amazing golf course, or how I can help your magazine, website, or business needs. I promise to meet your deadline and deliver a timeless story that exceeds your expectations. (Writing Credits Below. )
