About Me

Hi! I'm Ula. I'm a freelance writer and editor mostly covering the environment.


I live in northern Nevada and I'm eager to find local stories in the Great Basin, Tahoe, and Eastern Sierra. 

I've written for many publications, including Popular Science, Knowable magazine, Scientific American, and the BBC. I was a frequent contributor for PopSci for more than two years and you can see all of my PopSci stories here. I'm a regular writer for Climbing magazine, where I've also served as a copy editor in the past. 

I'm a graduate of the Science Communication Master's Program at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and hold a bachelor's degree in soil science from UC Davis. Before pursuing journalism, I wrote environmental impact reports for proposed developments in Southern California.
