me and CaBi

I’m Joe Flood, a writer, photographer and web person from Washington, DC.

And I’m RedBikeGuy, the person who made fun of the fascists when they came to DC.

Born in Wheaton, IL, I attended high school in Florida before moving to DC to attend American University, where I graduated with a BA in International Relations.

With a passion for writing, I began a career in digital communications, where I worked for major nonprofits and government agencies, including AARP, The Nature Conservancy, NOAA and GSA. I love working on web sites and helping organizations reach the public with clear and concise messaging.

Writing as a day job wasn’t enough for me. Outside of work, I’ve written four novels set in DC and I won the City Paper Short Story Competition.

I also write nonfiction – my articles have appeared in The Washington Post, On Tap and elsewhere.

When I’m not working on my creative projects, I enjoy biking around Washington, DC – and beyond. I’m a big part of the #BikeDC community, known for my photos of local bike culture.

On joeflood.com, I write about the things that interest me – books, beer, bikes and the arts.

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of stuff!

    I am interested in the DIY ethos, too. I’m not from DC, but on my visit there I saw a lot of hard core drive to “get to the top.” Phew!

    One of my favorite books is called Hope for the Flowers, by Trina Paulus. I think you might enjoy it.

  2. Saw you on the news, heckling the Patriot Front clowns! HILARIOUS! A most excellent use of one’s time. Rock on, my dude. 🍻

  3. Joe Flood you rock. Loved your confrontation with the patriots….. You are such an inspiration.
    Thank you, definitely the highlight of my day.

  4. notwithstanding your op-ed in the washington post, I have a custom made superhero cape for you. Check your mail.
