As a small, women-owned business, we know what it means to be both scrappy and consultative. Our team brings a variety of skill sets to diverse projects. For more than 20 years, we’ve adeptly responded to economic changes as well as client needs, growing in size and offerings. Above all, we subscribe to four objectives.

CLARITY

Make sense of complex ideas and clean up messages with precise writing, editing, and design.  

FLEXIBILITY

Quickly grasp new concepts, adapt to project changes, and back each other up to deliver on expectations responsively.

SUSTAINABILITY

Steadily grow our business and create a profit by managing scope, meeting deadlines, and impressing clients.

COMMUNITY

Lean on, learn from, and invest in our team while also serving our diverse community through volunteer time and donations.

Our Team

Writers, editors, designers, and project managers. McMul hires W-2 employees—not contract writers or freelance editors—so every person placed on your project has been tested, trained, and mentored. And every team member is backed by a deep pool of additional resources if you need to quickly scale up.

Ted Twinting

If there’s a person Ted can’t talk to, he hasn’t met them yet. He’s easily excited (think golden retriever), but he’s just as sincerely invested in connecting people and helping them succeed.​
Steven Clark

As Walt Disney said, “There’s no magic in magic. It’s all in the details.” Steven is tracking hundreds of things behind the scenes to keep our show running smoothly—just like magic!​

Synthia Clark

Our team lives up to our Community objective and is quick to support each other, learn from each other, and step up when someone needs help. Most importantly, they lean on each other’s differences—delighting in the stretch and growth that comes from diverse perspectives and insights.
