Profile of Peter Steinheuser
In addition to the well-timed Dilbert references and comic relief offered to us by his all-too-accurate “Steinheuserisms,” Peter is an outstanding DBA. Loved by every client, Peter’s relaxed approach and go-with-the-flow attitude is balanced with just the right amount of desire to get stuff done.
A long-time certified Oracle DBA and independent consultant, Peter has, in the last decade, drunk the open-source Kool-Aid (or light beer, as the case may be.) In addition to consulting, Peter has worked as a full-time Senior Postgres DBA with several companies, including MeetMe and EnterpriseDB.
Aside from his work as a DBA, Peter has excelled at performing training classes for companies large and small, as well as worked in pre and post-sales engineering roles.
Over the years, Peter has had a couple of articles published in Oracle Professional magazine, and is one of the few DBAs to hold patents from a prior career in pharmaceutical research.
Peter enjoys working with developers and clients to design and implement solutions, and can be found in Myrtle Beach one week a year playing golf.
