Hi! I'm Walter.

Walter Pinson

I am an entrepreneur, founder and CEO of Alekto; a Triangle Startup Factory Fall 2012 alumni company. Our team creates online software to help people maximize their credit scores while dealing with debt collectors. This site is where I write about credit reporting, startups, and tinkering with technology.

I am a lifelong problem solver with a passion for improving the human condition. When I was 12, I developed my first functional software application and I have been at it ever since. Along the way I completed a computer science degree, specializing in distributed and parallel computing, picked up an MBA, focusing on entrepreneurship and global strategy, and did stints at AOL and Microsoft.

This is my first step out of a lengthy communication blackout. I had basically given up on blogging. But after reading "blogging like a hacker", I am newly inspired.
