Biography:

Joseph J. Devney has been active in STC since shortly after he began his career in techni­cal communication in the mid-1990s. He served three years as president of the Berkeley Chapter, as well as judging the International Technical Art Competition and delivering a class and a presentation via the Berkeley Chapter. His lifelong interest in language also led him to return to school in 2007 to earn a Master’s degree in linguistics at Georgetown University. He is currently exploring the links between technical communication, linguistics, and legal language.
