About Jeff

I studied Neuroscience and Psychology at UC Berkeley and went on to found Merlock L.L.C

I've traveled extensively to England, Germany, France, Italy, India, Thailand, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mexico, Hawaii, Ukraine, and Israel.

Merlock L.L.C. is a web hosting and I.T. consulting business that builds customized software for businesses to enhance productivity. We are also innovators of green energy equipment such as devices that recycle used cooking oil into cost effective vehicle fuel.

My dream is to use the profits of our labor to start a non-profit company that will help disadvantaged people around the world, afford medical care. Specifically a program that will send doctors from the US to the third world, to train mid-level healthcare workers to effectively treat the sick. I believe that everyone should have equal access to healthcare, regardless of socioeconomic status.

While in college I owned a company that produced raves and concerts near San Francisco. While I don't produce raves anymore, I still run f8gear on the side, which sells music.

I joke around a lot and act like a kid when I'm around cute little pets. I love plants and growing plants. If I get an avocado (yum!) I plant the seed.

One indicator of successful people is their ability to choose a greater reward that takes longer to achieve, versus an inferior reward that takes less time. I typically wait the longer period for the greater reward.

Spring Break Perfection

  • 5 of 5

PERFECT is the only word that describes our 10-day stay at this beautiful property. Our family decided to spend Spring Break in the San Francisco area, choosing to stay in Marin County. This property suited all our needs, providing luxurious accommodations, unbelievable views from every window, a stunning outdoor patio, pool, and kitchen area and a convenient jumping off point for all our activities. We took advantage of some excellent restaurants in Tiburon and Sausalito, visited Muir Woods, Napa Valley and several sites in San Francisco, all with minimum time and effort.

The house is beautifully appointed, yet comfortable for old-agers to teenagers. Our hosts, Angelo and Jeff, thoughtfully provided a nice array of fruit and snacks - a welcome surprise after a long cross-country flight. We are a group who enjoy cooking so we took full advantage of the commercial range and the outdoor grill, managing to create a superb Easter dinner using ideas we gleaned from some of our restaurant meals.

We enjoyed the pool and made s'mores over the fire pit while marveling at the beauty of the Bay and the San Francisco skyline. Our teenager has already begged for a return trip to "this house" next year.

Without hesitation I would recommend this house during your next visit to San Francisco.

We rented this beautiful house for ten days over the Thanksgiving holiday. The gracious and elegant dining room was the perfect setting for my family's Thanksgiving dinner. Several other dinners were enjoyed by friends and family on the outside deck warmed by the outside heaters. The views are truly spectacular and the close proximity to so many interesting venues, Napa and Sonoma, San Francisco by ferry, Point Reyes, and more....made this a most memorable trip.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 12 wonderful days in this absolutely beautiful home. Our children live in San Francisco and stayed with us almost every night they loved it so much. Upon arrival, we were delighted and surprised to see that our hosts had stocked the kitchen with everything you might ever need including fresh fruit, breakfast items, coffee, cheese, crackers, etc. The views are breathtaking, the decor and condition of the house beyond compare! While we had a great deal of fun on our day trips in SF, Marin and the Wine Country it was actually hard to leave the backyard to venture out. One of our best days of the trip was the day we didn't leave the house. I really can't say enough about the house and how helpful Angelo and Jeff were - we will definitely be back soon!!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and part of her extended family stayed at this wonderful home in Tiburon and were so very pleased

with almost every aspect of this beautiful home. I think the view was also one of my very favorite things about the house as well as the outdoor kitchen and the outside dining table complete with heaters for having dinner

on the cooler October evenings while the sun was setting. Truly, it would be difficult to find much that one would not love about this idyllic spot. I thank Jeff and his associate, too, for being so accommodating for our specific needs. If we do not buy a home in Tiburon before our next visit back to the area, I guarantee, we will be booking this place again...
