Ogletree works as a conceptor in advertising and marketing, helping some of the biggest brands in the world tell their stories and present their products in market-changing ways through TV, print, radio, event, and in-store components. Over the past 20 years, he has written and published a variety of fiction, journalism and opinion pieces.

He is a graduate of The Ohio State University, where he studied creative writing, journalism and photography, and now lives in an old house in the Chicago area with his family, dogs, and a friendly ghost that apparently has a problem with alarm clocks.

He is happy to answer your questions about any piece in his portfolio, and he accepts special art assignments. Publication and usage rights are negotiable. Contact stu.ogletree [!at] gmail.com with all inquiries.
