Welcome to ckaleb[dot]com

Greetings and welcome my humble abode of unwarranted self-importance and Zulian-fueled pretentiousness.

Here you’ll find posts about my experiences living in Socialist Venezuela during these tumultuous times, as well as personal projects, video games, and everything in between. If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to slide into my DMs and I will gladly answer to you asap.

NEW: I have launched a brand new centralized hub page for Sword of the Nation, please give it a look at your earliest convenience.
