From St. John’s to Atlanta
Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Sean spent his early years with his grandfather learning how to fish, farm, and prepare regional cuisine in a breathtaking rural coastal setting. Sean turned his life long hobby and passion for food into a professional career after moving to Toronto and opening his first private chef company, The House Husband.
It was not long before Hollywood came knocking and a move to Beverly Hills was in his future. Eager to learn, Sean embarked on the adventures of living in a city like Los Angeles. In the years to follow, the finest American and European restaurants and hotels were his playground as he studied and honed his craft. In his free time, Sean began teaching culinary classes both to professional and nonprofessional students.
With his skills, knowledge and ability to create an event for every moment, he has been able to work for old Hollywood, new Hollywood, royalty, politicians and the jet set. After moving to Atlanta, Sean created Sean O’Keefe Events in the spring of 2009, specializing in seizing magic in every moment and cultivating his clients’ ideas into the most gracious and high-style not for profit events that metro Atlanta has ever seen. His work has helped raise in excess of $10,000,000 in partnership with his charity clients including the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance and Polo in the Pines.
With his Hollywood background it was easy to move into television and in 2014 Sean became a regular lifestyle and wellness contributor for NBC, CBS, FOX, and The Weather Channel. After taking a few years away from television to work on his Atlanta based wedding design and floral business, Sean is back in full force with regular television appearances and as a contributing associate editor for Lifestyle Publications. In his free time Sean is an avid beekeeper and organic gardener.
