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

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.
