KPIs for Dance Club DJs w/ Paul Ray

Welcome to Raw Data! In this episode, we chat with Paul Ray, a Microsoft Product design manager with over 20 years of experience in software design. Paul is currently working on educational experiences for students and educators around the world!

But what sets Paul apart is his unique journey to the tech world. As a teenager, he attended military maritime school with dreams of sailing the world. But after realizing the reality of working below deck in the engine room, he hit the road and traveled the country, gaining skills and experiences that eventually led him to Microsoft. Now, he’s using his skills to develop products that help people learn, work, play, and live better, including a game-changing product for education that’s helping teachers improve their students’ reading scores!

With his strong track record of delivering innovative user experiences and putting the user first, Paul is the perfect person to talk to about the importance of human-centered design. So, grab your favorite beverage and join us as we chat with Paul about his philosophy on human-centered design, and how he’s using tech to drive positive outcomes. This episode is packed with insights, humor, and a few surprises along the way, so tune in now!
