Here are some examples of the services I offer. Don’t see what you were looking for? Just ask!

Send me shopping

Groceries, household items, books, technology, sports equipment, even returns.

Home Care

Did you leave town and forget to turn off the stove? Need someone to drop in daily to check on the plants and pipes?

Tell me to take a walk

...with your dog. Or to feed your cat, and top up the bunny’s water.

Have me make a few calls

I’m not a plumber, carpenter, artist, interior decorator, tutor or chef—but I can find you the best of them and put you in touch.

Senior Assistance

Check mail, pick-up items or even play Monopoly with your favorite senior?

Be random: just ask

Organizing your photos, booking your trips, painting your fence, cleaning out closets, coordinating group gifts; anything else that will make your life easier. Just ask!

Sean Ryan

I’m Sean Ryan, a.k.a The Bytown Butler, your go-to guy for all the things that don’t fit into your day. In 2007, I left a job in high-tech account management to become an uber-organized stay-at-home dad with a part-time sales job in investments.

I’ve honed my organizational and networking skills over a decade of juggling part-time work with stay-at-home parenting, school volunteering, and coaching minor hockey while making time for friends, family and the occasional football game! I launched the Bytown Butler in 2015, with the idea of offering the support I bring to my home to busy Ottawa families in need of occasional help.
