Darlynne & Marc
When we first started Where You Want To Be, it was a simple walking and biking tour company that we did on the weekends. Marc’s passion for San Diego and natural curiosity were the initial driving forces but as time went on, we quickly realized, we were given a very special gift. For us, Where You Want To Be is a true reflection of who we are and what we enjoy doing the most – blessing people with an experience of a life time. As our favorite neighbor Pat once told us, “You two have found your true calling. You’re like two kids in a candy store.” It’s truly our hope that when you’re with us. you’ll say “I’m exactly where I want to be.”
Living life to the fullest
Experiencing the true meaning of JOY
Enjoying the thrill of new experiences
Embracing a child like spirit
Prior to launching the team building company in 2003, Marc did outside sales and business development in the Direct Mail Industry for 17 years. His passion for creating unique experiences was realized while planning a fundraiser event for the YMCA's Camp Surf Tropical Beach Party in 1999. It was that experience that ignited his passion for creating outdoor events that are fun and meaningful. ``Marc's unique perspective on life combined with his creative spirit is really what our experiences are all about,`` says Darlynne. ``He's the happiest when he gets to create a Scavenger Hunt from scratch and then gets to see a corporate group experience it.`` Marc's professional accomplishments include a Friends of the YMCA Award and Top 50 Most Admired CEO (San Diego Business Journal). Marc and Darlynne met at University of Pittsburgh Johnstown and relocated to San Diego from the East Coast in 1990. In his spare time, Marc loves riding his bike in San Diego's colorful beach towns, along with taking power walks in Balboa Park and Windansea Beach, playing basketball and discovering new adventures like San Diego's smaller and intimate theater experiences.
