speaking & teaching
The craft of speaking to groups of people involves authenticity, conviction, dynamics, and poise. 
A gifted orator, Carrie gives customized talks to entrepreneurs, women's groups and university students on a wide-range of topics, from the educational to the inspirational. She polished her speaking and performance skills from age 11 to 15, when she competed nationally and was a state finalist on her high school speech team. Most recently, she has been Affiliate Faculty at Metropolitan State University of Denver in their Communication Design program since January 2016, and she joined the Digital Design program at University of Colorado Denver in mid-2018.

published writing
Eloquence with the written word takes many forms, from the literal to the lyrical. Regardless of the tone or structure, the most effective words flow together in ways that engage and permeate within the reader.

Carrie’s writing has appeared in countless print and online publications across the globe, in the form of personal travel stories, entertainment features and copy within AP interactives and graphics (reporting news events through headlines, intro text, explainers, glances and chronologies). She also composes more creative, conceptual and educational forms of written expression, with additional stories on her blog: medium.com/@carrieosgood.
