Hi, I’m Andrea Gutierrez.

I am a writer and audio producer in Los Angeles.

These days you’ll find me mak­ing radio mag­ic behind the scenes as a pro­duc­er on NPR pod­cast It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders. I’m drawn to sto­ries at the inter­sec­tions of gen­der, race, class, and abil­i­ty in arts and cul­ture.

I’m a long­time sto­ry­teller with work in print, dig­i­tal, and audio. I got my start in radio pro­duc­ing inter­views and fea­tures for The Frame, a dai­ly arts and enter­tain­ment radio show on NPR sta­tion KPCC. Past bylines include 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.

In 2019, I was named an AIR New Voic­es Schol­ar and a final­ist in KCR­W’s 24-Hour Radio Race. Pri­or to work­ing in radio, 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 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.
