Sorry to hear you ran into some problems setting up your profile. What error are you getting when you upload your picture to your profile? Could you please try uploading a picture using a different browser?
That often happens with pictures taken by a smart phone if they have orientation data attached to the file. You can google "Remove EXIF data" and use one of the methods offered to update your picture.
I hope it helps.
Can you please try this photo instead (I tried to rotate your photo and remove the exif data again)? If the problem still persists, please let us know. Thank you!
