About Jay Harel

JH500x500

I create things – be it products, businesses, 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.
