A native of Crowley, Texas, Bertino studied cinematography at the University of Texas at Austin. Following graduation, he moved to Los Angeles, worked as a gaffer on low-budget independents and commercials and began to write.

In 2004, he submitted The Strangers for a Nicholl Fellowship, a grant awarded to unproduced writers by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Bertino sold the script, a quarterfinalist, to Universal Pictures several days later. In 2006, the studio asked him to direct it.

Bertino is currently writing several screenplays, including Green Eyes, an original drama for Scott Rudin.
