He studied food science and technology, learning food preparation and preservation techniques, before following his sister to New York to pursue his goal of attending culinary school in America. Chef Kyoo graduated from Le Cordon Bleu and returned to Manhattan to work at Chef Daniel Boulud’s signature DB Bistro Moderne and Cafe Boulud.

In 2014, he became executive chef at Poste Moderne Brasserie, where his training was transcendent in the French-inspired, farm-to-table dishes.
