Army soldier, police detective and bourbon street performer are just a few of the job titles on Matt Hoggatt’s resume.  Among them is a list accolades as varied as his choice of former professions, including national songwriting awards, viral YouTube videos, and being the subject of a Jimmy Buffett song.
