Welcome to Unretrofied. My name is Chris Gonzales. I am a writer, amateur photographer, husband, and father living in Oklahoma City. In addition to this site, I am a contributor at Tools & Toys and The Sweet Setup.

I write about a number of subjects here, with the general focus being on creativity, writing, craftsmanship, and design, with a dash of nerdery thrown in for good measure. I like to think of Unretrofied as a place where creative geeks can stop by, have a cup of coffee, and read something that'll stimulate their minds.

I'm currently trying to turn this site into a full-time thing. If you enjoy the content I write here and you've got a measly few bucks a month to spare, it would mean the world to me if you checked out the membership subscription :)


There are a few ways to keep up with this site:

  • Subscribe to the RSS feed.
  • Follow @unretrofiedblog on Twitter.
  • Follow @unretrofied on App.net
  • If you enjoy newsletters, enter your email address into the form below and every Saturday morning you will receive a collection of that week's articles. Best enjoyed with a cup of coffee and a comfy chair.

RSS Sponsorships

I do not currently have an RSS sponsorship system in place, but I am quite open to the idea. If you have something you'd like to advertise to an audience of lovely, tech-savvy people, let me know!

Affiliate Link Policy

From time to time, I may use affiliate links when linking to certain products on Amazon, iTunes, etc. You have my word that I will do this sparingly, and only for products that I use and love myself. If I've linked to something in this way, you can trust that I think it's worth your time. It costs you nothing extra, and helps me keep the lights on around here.
