ABOUT
WHO I AM

I'm Andrew Kaberline, a writer hailing from Clifton, Virginia and now living in New York City. I'm a man of pretty distinct interests. When I was in kindergarten, my teacher asked what I wanted to be when I grow up. I said, "A game show host." I love useless trivia and I'm a big fan of the arts—both high and low. Right now I have subscriptions for both The Criterion Channel and the WWE Network. I know just as much about Alfred Hitchcock as I do about Jeff Probst.

WHAT I'VE DONE

While studying Theatre & Cinema at Virginia Tech, I thought I wanted to be a multi-hyphenate. I was focused on acting, but also writing, producing, directing and live storytelling. After graduating, podcasting became my big thing. I worked with WNYC/Radio Rookies, teaching middle schoolers to make radio documentaries. But at a certain point, I realized that writing brought me the most joy. I've since shifted my focus entirely to that. All of my free time now is dedicated to writing specs, doing part-time script coverage for Particular Crowd, and finding success competing in screenwriting contests. Keep track of my progress in the "Updates" section below.

HOW I WRITE

I’m currently focused on screenplays, though I’ve also written for stage and radio. I write stories that live somewhere on a Venn diagram between “scary” and “heartwarming.” Thematically, I like exploring memory and nostalgia. My characters regularly obsess over trying to return to a time or a place that no longer exists. Stylistically, I focus on economy of dialogue while creating realistic worlds that encounter one element of whimsy or magic.
Big influences include Jeff Nichols, Rod Serling, and Wong Kar-wai.
