"My desire is to create things that are beautiful, useful and things that people enjoy." Alrinthea Carter told us in describing her goal for her life.  She lives this goal as the executive producer of and performer with Greenville's Alchemy Comedy Theater.  Her photography of old and abandoned buildings across South Carolina, which can be found on her website www.southernphilter.com, are another example of living her goals.  Even in her work as an academic adviser at Clemson University, Alrinthea lives her goal through the students she aids.
