Welcome to ckaleb[dot]com

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

I’ll be writing about my experiences living in Socialist Venezuela during these tumultuous times, as well as personal projects, video games, and everything in between.

Please pardon the dust, grammar errors, and placeholders, I’m shaping things as fast as time and irl stuff permits.

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to slide into my DMs and I will gladly answer to you asap.
