About Jay Harel

JH500x500I create things – products, companies, art, and relationships. Living and working in Silicon Valley makes it a lot easier. I spend my free time building and designing new things, parenting, dreaming up new businesses (occasionally breathing life into them), flying airplanes, volunteering for non-profits and helping budding entrepreneurs. My extraordinary wife Danielle found her calling in sexology; there’s never a dull moment with her. She and her amazing partner Celeste run a successful coaching and therapy business – more about them here.
