Matt Hoglund


Matt thinks in music. It is likely that something you say will cue up a song in his brain. He uses his classical vocal training to support harmony, structure, and beauty in his life and work. Matt brings his natural zestiness to his role at Lightyear infusing fun and a deep level of service to everything he does.

In the first program Matt took with Susanne in 2010, he set an intention to be 100% himself wherever he went. The journey set into motion in that intention has been both subtle and dynamic, leading him to fulfill some of the dreams he set for himself as a child. Matt began leading Lightyear (then igolu) programs in 2011. In March 2017 he raised $10,000, through the Lightyear global shareback program, by producing his first solo one man show—a goal 15 years in the making.
