Namakula is a NYC based actor/writer/producer born to a quirky, academic Ugandan father and a feisty Jamaican mother. Her bi-cultural upbringing fueled her interest in foreign languages, travel and comic books. She's explored 4 continents (so far), and spent significant time and worked in the UK and Spain. Specifically, Barcelona, which for many years she considered her second home. Her philosophy is:

Do great work with good people--and it'll never feel like work.

Her performance work runs the gamut from theatre, films, TV, webseries, (check out "Kate & Kula") commercials, voice over, music and stand up comedy. Her offbeat humor has landed her comedic roles on The Daily Show, Conan O’Brien, and a Broad City promo (with Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson). She’s worked with groundbreaking directors such as: Nzingha Stewart, Charles Stone IIIDavid Shane, and the legendary Joe Pytka. Notably, she was the VOICE of REI's "Force of Nature" campaign, winner of the Cannes Bronze Glass Lion (2018). And, she was cast as Understudy in the 2019 Pulitzer Prize winning play,"Fairview" (original cast). Recently, she's appeared in episodes of NBC's "New Amsterdam", "The Blacklist" and Netflix's "Inventing Anna.

Currently, Namakula is a SAG-AFTRA 2023 candidate running for the office of New York Local President.
