The folks behind the stories


Andre Natta headshot André Natta, Publisher/Managing Editor
The stationmaster hails from The Bronx (NYC). He ended up in the Magic City after an 11-year stopover in Savannah, GA. He spent most of his professional career prior to The Terminal in urban revitalization and hospitality, two career tracks that have actually come in quite handy while running Birmingham’s hub for conversation. He still finds time (though not as often as he’d like) to write about life as a transplant in Birmingham and life as a professional blogger over on Dre’s Ramblings.

We like Bob. He’s a freelance photographer who specializes in corporate and editorial photography. Farley worked for the Birmingham Post-Herald for 18 years as a photojournalist and editor. He started f8Photo after the paper closed in September 2005, where he works with a variety of local business and publications, including ours.

Vickii stays busy enough serving as the editor-in-chief and executive producer of Birmingham View. We’re happy that the former Birmingham News reporter can provide us with some assistance covering local news stories from time to time. She is a past vice-president of print in the Birmingham Association of Black Journalists. In that role, she helped plan and organize community and professional events and has a network of media contacts locally and throughout the country.
Josh Self
In addition to his posts over on Timetable, Josh writes in a few other places – The Horse, The Wedding PhotogBlog and Get A Flip.

He freelances as a wedding and portrait photographer in Birmingham and considers himself a “Conservative Leaning Libertarian.”
