My self-summary
*Please read what I am looking for first. :)

I'm half Cuban and half Spanish (as in...from Spain). Most never guess this. You can't really know anyone via an internet profile. People are just too complex to be put in text boxes...yada yada yada...you don't really know anyone very well at first either. I'm not religious, or especially political. This doesn't mean I don't have opinions or preferences.

Some words from someone very wise:

I don't take too much seriously anymore. As a matter of fact I think the best thing you can do is laugh at whatever shit comes your way. Chances are, you'll be a better person in the end. So that's what I'm all about. Laughing at everything and everyone. Especially you, dear reader.

Lastly: I'm really into the law of attraction/manifesting ones reality. It's something that shapes my perspective and helps me find happiness. I'm not looking for another "believer". I just want to put it out there because it's something that informs my way of being, and is on my mind a lot.
What I’m doing with my life
I am an artist, and an industrial designer. Recently finished a joint MFA in Applied Craft and Design between the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts and the Pacific Northwest college of Arts.

If you'd like to follow me on Instagram look me up @karlramentol

I've been showing my new series Topi Incognitum around town recently. That first photo of me is at one said showing.

I go to the gym 4-5 times a week. I don't know how I ever managed to stay sane without the gym.

Lastly. I'm writing a graphic novel (think sandman or vertigo comics) called Real People. I have some photos in my Instagram feed. Ask me about it if you are curious. It's very special to me.
I’m really good at
I'm a pretty good dancer.
Nothing formated (step related). I wouldn't mind learning however. There are also other things (e.g. color schemes)
Check out the links above.
The first things people usually notice about me
Um, Good hair?

INFP. I lean towards the center of introvert/extrovert.

This means I can be rather quiet in certain groups. I'm actually a riot one on one. Unless you creep me out with your politics and or judgments. ^ see above for specifics. J/K. Opinions are good. But they are just that. I'll be drinking a coke and having a smile. ;)

One thing I should mention is people never guess my age. I have been mistaken for someone 10 years younger for almost as many yrs. Im young at heart and seek others still so.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books
I was into the Beats and Transcendental stuff back in the day like On the Road, Dharma Bums, Thoreau anything by Allen Watts. Beginners Mind by Shunryu Suzuki is fundamental. I also found The Fountainhead (Howard Roark is fascinating) strangely visceral and as an Artist close to my heart. The Dao de Jing played a big role in shaping my personality and spirituality. As master Po would say, I try not to resist things but instead bend like a reed. On the design side Cradle to Cradle design was a game changer. I think it was for a lot of people. Dwell is nice to scan through at the grocery store checkout. I love Neil Gaiman, and I'm into Japanese, Chinese, or just folktales/literature in general. Heinland's Stranger in a strange land is a personal favorite. I also like reading philosophers. Less now these days. Also I like to read up on metaphysical subjects as they pertain to mundane matters. In other words, being grounded has nothing to do with pragmatism. Something else to clarify sometime...

I'm reading A Game of Thrones at the moment. I plan on getting through all of them eventually.

Movies
Just saw The Big Lebowski again recently. That movie is even funner after all these yrs. Ive got to be honest. Movies are perhaps a blind spot on my cultural rear view mirror. I just made that phrase up.

TV
I dig cable TV. Like AMC and HBO shows. Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Hell on Wheels, and The Walking Dead.

Comedy
Paul F Tompkins cracks me up. Ive been listening to more comedy lately. Not so much political satire(although colbert is a genius) or anything too strange like * Tim and Eric. I mean they're ok but I like comedy that is a little more "clever" in a traditional way. Children's Hospital is great. Adult Swim is a good "go too".

* OK, I think they got through to me:

I plan on hitting some local clubs soon. Yeah. Cause comedy is funny.

Music
I live in Portland, of course I like indie rock.

Mostly I don't keep up these days with any particular music genre. I know what i like...I just dont define myself by the music I listen to.

Food
I "was" vegetarian. I don't think its wrong to eat meat. I do however think there are ways of making the food industry better for everyone involved. Processes change. I promote change.

Oh and I like smoothies:

The six things I could never do without
My eyes, my imagination, a sense of humor, love (as in appreciation of all things...hippy shit), inspiration, the world outside of me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Physics, Metaphysics, Sex, Love. Physics + metaphysics. Sex + metaphysics. Sex is equal to or greater than physics so I don't think about that as much. Love is greater than and equal to everything. Love + Physics + Metaphysics + Sex. Color. Composition. Music. My friends and family. Basically...things that make me happy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my roommates. Going to parts unknown.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm kind if an open book when you get to know me.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–36
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, casual sex
You should message me if
*So I just changed my preferences to two things. Actually there is a third option. FWB's. I'm really focused on my career/self at the moment and find anything more too complex for me. This is not to say I'm not open to eventually having a stable, mutually beneficial romantic relationship. I would prefer that in many ways. Yet this is where I am and realize it makes things easier. If you think you can handle a man who knows what he wants/is willing to develop a friendship(s)/and a strong foundation then I might also be what you are looking for. That said...

You want to have fun. I don't like having an agenda or expectations beyond the moment. You are a positive and non-judgmental person. You want to get to know me. Want to find someone to explore Portland and possibly Oregon. Have a compassionate nature. Funny is good but not required. Especially on a first date.

I've been wanting to do bar trivia and karaoke more often. I want to hit the comedy clubs but that might be 3rd date material. If you're into this type of stuff let me know.
