ABOUT LOVE TO LATITUDE

Every day is a new opportunity to change your life

Hi and Welcome!

We are Brett and LJ, a husband and wife team from Florida and Alaska, here to share our life’s adventures, passion for travel, and heart of service through our brand, Love to Latitude.

We created Love to Latitude as a platform to represent what we love in life – our passion for travel and heart of service! We’re a laid-back couple taking a chance on life while putting our dreams into action with hard work and determination. Starting something new is fun and, at times, uncomfortable. My wife and I made the decision that no matter the circumstances, we will go into this next chapter of our lives with a flexible mindset as we accept the challenges ahead to improve, learn, and grow while doing what we love.

We hope to inspire you – the world – as we share our stories, lessons, and travel experiences, to live more on PURPOSE.

We have one life – a life to live, enjoy and explore.

Love To Latitude About Us Brett Dupont 2

Hi, I’m Brett!

A simple, laid-back guy who loves adventure, travel, and service. I grew up in sunny Florida spending most of my time in the water.  If I wasn’t swimming, wakeboarding, or exploring along the St. Johns river, I was at the beach surfing doing my best to live my best life!  I surfed my first wave at the age of 6 with my dad in New Smyrna Beach, FL., and have loved the sport ever since.

I’ve lived in three different states within the U.S.: Florida, Alaska, and Oregon. Currently, I reside in Oregon with my wife LJ and love every moment of its beauty.  I used to work in the Arctic of Alaska for 16 years in one of the harshest environments on our planet, and yes, it gets frigid. I can honestly say I’ve experienced some of the coldest temperatures on earth (-98 degrees Fahrenheit).

I made a promise to my wife in 2009 that when our daughters are off on their own we would open a new chapter in our lives and pursue our passions.  Finally, in 2022 we took the plunge, quit my job in Alaska, and transitioned full-time as Love to Latitude.

I have a beautiful wife that supports my wild ideas, thirst for adventure, & ridiculous humor.

My favorite place that I’ve traveled to is Fiji, & my dream home would be on a private island with great surf and clear blue water. Sunny all day with a little rain in the evening while sharing a bit of paradise with close friends and family.

Love To Latitude About Us LJ 2

Hi, I’m LJ!

An out-going yet shy small-town gal born and raised on the “Emerald Isle,” Kodiak Island, Alaska.  After 35 years of living in Kodiak, my husband, Brett, and I moved to Oregon in 2012. It was such a significant change for me, but I love how Oregon reminds me of home!

Moving away from my home state was hard, but my husband’s carefree spirit made my first experience of moving memorable. His outlook on life is admirable and truly inspiring, and I’m so grateful to have Brett both as my husband and friend (since high school). We may be the total opposites, but we balance and keep each other on our toes.

Wherever I am, I stay active, love meeting new people, and get out to travel near or far.

My favorite places I’ve visited so far are Fiji and the Maldives. Both are very special in their own way and the experiences & memories we have are forever.

LJ’s the voice, architect, and social media manager behind Love to Latitude.
