Landry Butler has an insatiable curiosity about the world and loves to work out problems by looking for patterns and connections that can be difficult to see. He joined the MP&F team in September after completing the Data Analysis bootcamp at Nashville Software School.
At MP&F, Landry is a data analyst who supports a variety of clients, including Solstice Senior Living, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Job Corps program and ADS Security. He leverages decades of experience in graphic design and publishing with tools such as Python and Tableau to sift through complex datasets, determine correlations and present meaningful information to support good business decisions.
A native Tennessean, Landry has lived in Nashville most of his life and is a longtime participant in the local art scene. He has reviewed grants for Metro Arts, has served as a board member at The Plowhaus Artists Co-op and was a founding member of the Untitled art collective, which lasted 25 years.
As an artist, Landry is best known for his visual art, spoken word and music, which have been favorably compared to that of Jandek, Laurie Anderson, Dr. Eugene Chadbourne and They Might Be Giants. As he is a keen observer of life, Landry’s genre-crossing work deals with themes of change, personal growth and self-actualization in a society that encourages alienation, fear and self-consumption. He is a founding member and master wordsmith with the underground art music collective Inglewood Social Club. In the award-winning film “FOGG: Diary of a Sociopath” (2017), he played the role of Dr. Abraham Prince.
