info:
Tim Cotroneo is a travel writer specializing in island hotels, villas, and golf. My passion for writing was sparked by an article covering the Turks and Caicos Islands. A series of golf articles blossomed into travel destination pieces and business profiles. Nothing gets me jazzed like the anticipation of a trip to a destination I’ve never visited before. At each new stop, I find fascinating people with a story to tell. I love hearing and writing about how a particular setting makes a difference in one’s life. I enjoy describing what is unique about each place and how this location made someone’s dream come alive. Since 2008, I’ve been the Travel Writer for American Business Magazine. I write entrepreneurial profiles wrapped in destination pieces. My goal is to share how these individuals have found career success on their own little piece of paradise
