Ula Tuszewicka Founder & President
Ula originally moved to San Diego from Poland as an exchange student when she was 18. She fell in love with the city for many reasons, including the unforgettable fish tacos and its proximity to both the mountains and beaches. As an experienced snowboarder, Ula doesn’t get to the mountains as often as she’d like these days, but she still loves that San Diego’s perfect climate allows her to enjoy outdoor activities with her kids year round.
It's difficult to choose a favorite but Ula holds the Tula Love collection close to her heart.
Mike Pham Vice President
Born in Vietnam, Mike emigrated to San Diego with his family as a baby. He takes full advantage of being able to catch some waves before heading to work every morning. Mike has earned the title of 2nd Most Interesting Man in the World, after that dos equis guy, for riding a rogue wave while avoiding a sharktopus attack through hypnosis.
His favorite Tula is The Star for having a subtle statement that's unique.

Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Kaitlin moved to San Diego in 2013 to combine her loves of the ocean and the desert, but also so she can frequent Disneyland and pursue her dream of being best friends with Cinderella.

A New Englander by birth, Allie came to San Diego via the California Bay Area. She has lived in San Diego for 10 years and is now so spoiled by the beautiful weather that she doesn’t even own a coat. Allie considers Friday the 13th to be a day of good luck – it just so happens that the day she moved to San Diego and her first day working at Tula both fell on a Friday the 13th!
Her favorite Tula print is Emulsion because it reminds her of her love for analog black and white photography.
