My given nickname is spelled “reechard” (and pronounced ree-shard) which I often use for two separate reasons:
- Google “Richard Walker” some time. It’s an army! Walker is an adopted name; I got stuck with it
- “reechard” is fluent in Spanish, speaks some French, lived in Europe, plays the piano, composes, writes, and has many interests not shared by “Richard Walker, software engineer”
I don’t have multiple personality disorder, but I do have multiple rôle and/or multiple “brand” issues.
I also have more than twenty years of experience in commercial software development.
