About Joe Garofoli
GAROFOLI, JOE writes about media at the intersection of politics and culture for the San Francisco Chronicle, an extension of a beat he created several years ago called "Red and Blue" to examine the political and cultural differences in the country. In January, he will temporarily join the politics team for the next several weeks. Over the past 20 years of feature writing, he has covered Seventh Avenue fashion shows, the Jeffrey Dahmer serial murders, two Olympic Games and been on the road covering the presidential race in Missouri and Ohio. He has won national and regional awards for health, education and lifestyle stories and column writing during a journalistic journey that has taken him from Chicago to Fort Lauderdale to Washington, D.C. to Milwaukee to the Bay Area. He received his masters and undergraduate degrees in journalism from Northwestern University. He lives in Oakland with his wife and two daughters, ages nine and seven. He enjoys playing soccer in an over-30 league (and coaching his daughter's team), listening to live music, skiing and watching his hometown Pittsburgh Steelers.
