Every day is a new opportunity to change your life


Every day is a new opportunity to change your life

Hi, and Welcome!

We are Brett and LJ, a couple based in Portland, Oregon, after spending 16 years working in the Alaskan Arctic, where Brett would spend weeks away from family.  We decided it was time to start a new chapter in our lives.  Shifting our needs from being parents and paying the bills, we are ready to create a new journey.

Our strong desire to create something that we could make for our family, combined with our love of exploring and giving back to the communities that welcome us, Love to Latitude was born.

We really want to differentiate between being a tourist and being citizens of the world.  Love to Latitude hopes to offer a new outlook on the world, showing that you, too, can make a difference by going out of your comfort zone.  We want to provide an alternative lifestyle from the typical 9-5 and ultimately connect with people worldwide.

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

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 outgoing 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.  Moving away from my home state was hard and a significant change for me, but I love how Oregon reminds me of home!

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.
