What is the current header image on this site?

How do we hire you for our project?

Contact OFE Consulting and email me.

Can we interview you?

Email me about email interviews for popular media, research, and other purposes.

Will you co-author our paper, grant, research project, etc.?

I’m glad to consider it. Send me a clear summary of your proposal, with a list of those involved and their roles, and a timeline.

Why is your name so long?

My name contains the name of my mother’s father (Paul Oman) inside the name of my own father (Michael Reagan). Oman is my mother’s family name, Reagan is my father’s family name. I am a bit of each with a nod to my maternal grandfather, who was an entomologist.

Are you the same Michael Oman-Reagan as…?

Probably, I’m likely the only person with that name on Earth so far. I have history as an artist, a gallery owner, and an activist, so you’ll see all kinds of things on the internet about me. The best source for information about me is me, so ask.

Where are you located?

I may be in Newfoundland, Silicon Valley, British Columbia, Oregon or elsewhere.

Will you help me publish my writing?

I am always interested in projects relating to my research areas. If you think your work is relevant email me a summary or pitch an idea and I will consider your project for publication online at Space+Anthropology.

Why haven’t you responded to my email?

If your email wasn’t spam, it is likely on my list of things to do. If you’ve emailed me for the first time and haven’t had a reply after two weeks, write me again – I may have missed your message. I get a large number of emails but will always respond to friendly inquiries eventually.

Why won’t you talk to me on the phone, skype with me, meet with me in person?

I’m happy to exchange email, chat online, work in collaboration software, or consider other ways we can work together online.
