Hi, I’m Andrea Gutierrez.

I am an award-winning audio journalist in Los Angeles. 

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

A long­time sto­ry­teller with work in print, dig­i­tal, and audio, I’m cur­rent­ly a pro­duc­er on NPR pod­cast It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders. Pri­or to that, I pro­duced inter­views and fea­tures for The Frame, a dai­ly arts and enter­tain­ment radio show on NPR sta­tion KPCC. Past bylines include BBC World Ser­vice, CBC, LAist, The Cal­i­for­nia Sun­day Mag­a­zine, Mar­fa Pub­lic Radio, Bitch, make/shift, Huizache, and the Los Ange­les Review of Books.

I am a Nation­al Arts & Enter­tain­ment Jour­nal­ism Award win­ner, IWMF Gwen Ifill Fel­low, AIR New Voic­es Schol­ar, and was a final­ist in KCR­W’s 24-Hour Radio Race. In a pre­vi­ous life, I spent sev­er­al years as a uni­ver­si­ty admin­is­tra­tor. I taught, coun­seled, and men­tored stu­dents at UC Berke­ley, UCLA, UC River­side, and Cal State LA.

A first-gen­er­a­tion col­lege grad­u­ate and life­long South­ern Cal­i­forn­ian, I received a B.A. in Ger­man stud­ies at Scripps Col­lege and an MFA in cre­ative non­fic­tion at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, River­side. I’m an alum of the Tran­som Trav­el­ing Work­shop and the VONA Voic­es Work­shop for writ­ers of color.
