Jovi Dufren grew in up in Larose, Louisiana, a small town that is just an hour south from “The Big Easy.” His childhood being spent majority on shrimp boats, he grew up to land a job in underwater robotics. He shared “I guess just being on a boat is in my blood. So we go down, we do maintenance on pipelines for oil production. I actually love my job, we do a lot of cool stuff, we see all kinds of animals. But my favorite thing about my job is the travel.” He says that his schedule consists of four weeks on and four weeks off. And during his four weeks off he would pick a country to go travel to.
“Growing up, I always dreamed of exploring so it’s been great. It opened up my eyes and I’ve just become more understanding of the world. A lot of times, I would go alone so I downloaded a travel app to start to meet people and one day, I met a girl named Yara [Zaya].”
