Matthew Heines

Agent: Maxwell Smart
Kirkland, Washington, United States


Home page:

Matthew (a.k.a "Matt") Heines was raised in the Pacific Northwest in the sleepy town of Sequim, Washington. Matthew graduated high school with much fanfare and relief from his teachers. He served as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division from 1982-1986, playing the role of Hawkeye from M*A*S*H. He then entered the world of academia, annoying college professors at Washington State University before going on to do his post graduate work at the University of Alaska, in Anchorage, where he hoped, nobody had ever heard of him. He has worked as a teacher in Wasilla, Alaska, Seattle, Washington, The Sultanate of Oman and The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Matt is still not sure what he likes better, being deathly hot, soaking wet, or freezing cold.

Interests: I enjoy using public transport and every five minutes yelling, "My God, what was that noise?" I also enjoy trying to guess the purchase dates of my socks.
