A native of Colorado, Kyle moved to Germany as a Rotary International exchange student at the age of 16 before attaining degrees in Economics and International Relations at Seattle Pacific University. His first professional move took him to India, volunteering in micro finance. In 2010 Kyle joined the team at Canlis as a newcomer to the industry. Within four years, and having worked every position in the dining room, he became the youngest Service Director in the restaurant’s history. As the leader of our dining room staff, he is charged with creating the warmest hospitality experience in fine dining—a task he eagerly pursues every dinner service.
