I have a pretty serious job (Tech Lead) leading a team building complex systems. Some of the challenges we encounter make your brain and stress is almost a constant companion. I like to inject humor, preferably the silly kind, when I can. Silly profile names are a great way to do that and I try to use them when I log into virtual meetings where it’s just our team (no customers or others who might not understand or appreciate this).
Here’s a small selection of identities I’ve used or plan to use.
Johann Sebastian Rock – Musicologist
Tara Dactyl – Paleontologist – Tagline = I dig dinosaurs
Sue Yu – Lawyer
Rapid Roy – Stock Car Racer (Thanks to Jim Croce for this one)
Ken Hurt – Doctor
Bear Knuckles – Boxer
Ben Dover – Proctologist
Ken Chew – Dentist
Woody Hammock – Wilderness Guide
