Hi, I’m Andrea Gutierrez.

I am a writer and audio producer in Los Angeles.

I’m drawn to stories at the intersections of gender, race, class, and ability in arts and culture.

My work has appeared in print, dig­i­tal, and audio in var­i­ous out­lets, includ­ing BBC World Ser­vice, The Cur­rent (CBC), LAist, The Cal­i­for­nia Sun­day Mag­a­zine, Mar­fa Pub­lic Radio, Bitch, make/shift, Huizache, and the Los Ange­les Review of Books. I’m a reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor to The Frame, a dai­ly arts and enter­tain­ment radio show by NPR sta­tion KPCC.

In 2019, I was named an AIR New Voic­es Schol­ar and a final­ist in KCR­W’s 24-Hour Radio Race. I also com­plet­ed the ACTIVATE Arts Advo­ca­cy Lead­er­ship Pro­gram as a cul­tur­al pol­i­cy fel­low and received schol­ar­ships to attend the PMJA annu­al con­fer­ence and the RTDNA Anchor and Pro­duc­er Lead­er­ship Sum­mit.

Pri­or to my career in media, I spent sev­er­al years as a uni­ver­si­ty admin­is­tra­tor. I taught, coun­seled, and men­tored stu­dents at UC Berke­ley, UCLA, UC River­side, and Cal State LA.

I received an MFA in cre­ative non­fic­tion at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, River­side, and a B.A. in Ger­man stud­ies at Scripps Col­lege. I’m an alum of the Tran­som Trav­el­ing Work­shop, AIR Full Spec­trum Sto­ry­telling Inten­sive, and the VONA Voic­es Work­shop for writ­ers of col­or.
