PETER KANG^^Co-founder and Partner at Barrel


Peter once dreamed of running his own publication and first began designing and coding websites in middle school as a way to publish his own monthly magazine. He developed a passion for building websites and began to take on client work in college, where he gained experience as a freelancer and eventually teamed up with Sei-Wook to start a two-person web design company.

Peter oversees the disciplines that deliver expertise and creativity to Barrel’s clients. His day-to-day focus is on exploring the intersection of design, content, and technology to create impactful experiences for clients. He also writes about leadership and habits on his personal blog.

A graduate of Columbia University, Peter currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife Melanie and loves riding his bike to work. He also enjoys reading and mixing cocktail drinks at home.
