This isnt a URI so cannot act be a linked data identity.  Prefiix http://
to create a URI for the homepage.  Add a path for where you want your
profile document.  Then use a fragment to point to the person as different
from the document.

owl : sameAs can be used to indicate two persons are the same, however if
you are mixing documents and data then some stuff may break, including owl
: sameAs ... there are probably no easy solutions here -- vanity urls often
come at the cost of ambiguous or incomplete semantics
