I would like to be able to use two different about.me addresses. One would be my screen name that I use everywhere around the web (eg. about.me/tschareck). Another one would be more like about.me/firstname.lastname, so I can use it in more professional situations.

Is there any way to accomplish this, other than creating two profiles, one for my nickname, and one for my real name?

You want them to point to the same profile? – Eight Days of Malaise May 14 '12 at 19:27
That would be most desirable, but is it doable? – Tschareck May 14 '12 at 20:00

As of now, creating two separate profiles is your only option.

The longer I think about it, maybe it would make sense to have two profiles. One professional, one casual. – Tschareck May 14 '12 at 21:35
It certainly won't hurt to reserve your professional username for future use. – tinym May 16 '12 at 21:15
