About Me

Hi, I’m Andrea Gutierrez. 

I am a writer and audio producer in Los Angeles. 

I pro­duce inter­views and fea­tures for The Frame, a dai­ly arts and cul­ture radio show by NPR affil­i­ate KPCC. I am drawn to sto­ries about 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), The Frame (KPCC), LAist, The Cal­i­for­nia Sun­day, Mar­fa Pub­lic Radio, Bitch, make/shift and Huizache, and my name pre­vi­ous­ly appeared on the mast­heads of make/shift and the Los Ange­les Review of Books. 

In 2018, I was select­ed as a cul­tur­al pol­i­cy fel­low for the ACTIVATE Arts Advo­ca­cy Lead­er­ship Pro­gram by Arts for LA and received an AIR New Voic­es Hon­or­able Men­tion.

Pri­or to my career in media, I spent almost 15 years as a high­er edu­ca­tion admin­is­tra­tor. I taught, coun­seled, and men­tored stu­dents at UC Berke­ley, UCLA, UC River­side, and Cal State LA.

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

Let’s make stories together.
