P. Heinlein

I’m a systems administrator for Oregon Heath & Science University, a medical school and research institution, working in the Advanced Computing Center in support of OHSU’s research mission. My job history is outlined below, or you can consult my résumé. I live with my wife and children in Oregon, in the greater Portland metropolitan area. Once you get past the drizzle and darkness of our winters, it’s easy to be entranced by the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

If you’d like to contact me, e-mail is the way to go: For the security-minded, my GPG public key (8F54CA35) is available directly from my site or on public keyservers like the one at MIT.
