Justin Baldoni is an actor, director, producer, entrepreneur, and changemaker whose efforts are focused on creating impactful media and entertainment. His most notable role is Rafael on The CW’s award-winning phenomenon, Jane the Virgin.

In 2012, he created and directed My Last Days, an uplifting documentary series about life as told by courageous people living with a terminal illness. The series was recognized by the Television Academy Honors as one of the most powerful and impactful television shows of 2018 that inspired social change.

Baldoni made his feature film directorial debut in March 2019 with Five Feet Apart. The film centers around two cystic fibrosis patients who fall in love but aren’t allowed to have physical contact with each other due to their medical conditions. Baldoni also produced the film, which was released by CBS Films and Lionsgate; It went on to become CBS Films’ third highest grossing film of all time. Five Feet Apart grossed over $90 million worldwide crushing all box office predictions thanks to an emotional, heart-warming story and tremendous word of mouth. The film was nominated for several awards including a People’s Choice Awards nomination for “Drama Movie of 2019” and a Teen Choice Awards nomination for “Choice Drama Movie.” Baldoni had the idea to turn the script into a book, which then went on to become a New York Times bestseller.

His next project, Warner Bros. Clouds, based on the book Fly a Little Higher by Laura Sobiech, will be released in 2020.

In 2013, Justin co-founded Wayfarer Entertainment —a cause-driven media studio focused on creating content that highlights inspiration, unity, and the power of human connection. Through this platform, he created the dinner conversation series, Man . Enough, which dives into traditional masculinity while focusing on topics like body image, relationships, and fatherhood.

He is the founder and chairman of The Wayfarer Foundation — a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the way communities see and respond to the needs of people experiencing homelessness by creating unique experiences that bring people together and uplift, empower and enhance the lives of our unhoused neighbors. Every January, the Foundation puts on the Carnival of Love, which provides connection, services, and resources to people who are experiencing homelessness in LA’s Skid Row community. The Foundations 6,000+ volunteers have served over 15,000 guests, providing them access to over 100 service partners annually.
