Do you have a favorite UX/IA/UI book and if so why?

So hard to narrow it down. I really like the challenge of visually exploring ideas and communicating them, and I'm always intrigued to learn how others do so. For that reason, I'd say two current favorite are Dan Brown's "Communicating Design" and Todd Zaki Warfel's "Prototyping: A Practitioner's Guide."

What do you do (or want to do) related to the UX field?

I work in UX at Pixo in Urbana. I'm interested in all flavors of UX but particularly information architecture. I love wire framing and sketching and want to continue to improve at both.

What's the one tool that you couldn't live without? (Analog or digital)

A very fine pen (current favorite Pilot G-TEC) and a notebook with grid lines.

What's your Twitter handle?

I am the director of user experience & research at Pixo in Urbana. I earned a master's in library and information science from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. Previously, I worked as a journalist.
