Gurrieri was born in Winterthur, Switzerland in 1989, but holds dual Argentine and Italian citizenship. He began his career with Italian Serie B side Ternana, progressing from the youth team and reserves to make six first team appearances for the club. A tricky winger, he spent the 2008-09 campaign on loan at Colligiana, playing sixteen games in the fourth tier of the Italian league. Following his release by Ternana in May 2010 he signed for Uruguayan side Sud America and played 20 times during his single season with the team.
In July 2011 he joined Argyle on trial, but despite impressing, Peter Reid was unable to complete his signing due to the constraints of the administration process. In the October, after spending some time with Bournemouth, he joined Burton Albion after a successful month-long trial period, during which he played in a number of reserve team and friendly matches. An initial three-month deal was later extended to the end of the season. He played fourteen times for the Brewers, including against Argyle at Home Park. Gurrieri was released by Burton at the end of the season and he returned to Argyle for a second trial in July 2012, agreeing a twelve-month contract with manager Carl Fletcher shortly afterwards.
The popular and industrious utility player became the first South American to play for the club, and was used regularly by Carl Fletcher as Argyle continued to battle for their Football League lives. Having initially failed to impress new manager John Sheridan, Gurrieri again became an established choice under his second Home Park manager and in total made 68 appearances and scored 5 goals. At the end of the 2013-14 season, he was offered a further one-year contract extension but declined and returned to Argentina with his family. In July 2014 he signed for Argentinian side Club Social y Deportivo Tristan Suarez on an 18-month contract. The club, based in the Greater Buenos Aires area, play in the Primera B Metropolitana league. Within a month of the season's start, Gurrieri's involvement with his new club was curtailed after a serious cruciate and medial ligament injury that required surgery and rehabilitation.
In September 2016, having recovered injury, Gurrieri signed for Club Sportivo Italiano in Ciudad Evita, part of Greater Buenos Aires, to play in the Argentine Primera C league (4th tier of Argentine football).
