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.
