Justin Baldoni        

Actor Known for "Jane the Virgin;" CEO of Wayfarer Entertainment

Justin Baldoni is an actor, director, producer, speaker, and entrepreneur who is focused creating impactful media and entertainment. He is best known for playing Rafael on CW’s award-winning phenomenon Jane the Virgin.

An outspoken feminist, Baldoni has been doubling down on his efforts to start a dialogue with men to redefine masculinity. He gave a famous TED Talk, "Why I'm Done Trying to be Man Enough," which has been viewed over 5 million times. He also launched a web series called "Man Enough," where he hosts a round table discussion with other male celebrities for discussions about the meaning and definition of traditional masculinity.

In 2012, Baldoni created the most watched digital documentary series in history, My Last Days, a show about living told by the dying. On the heels of that success, Baldoni founded Wayfarer Entertainment, a digital media studio focused on disruptive inspiration.

In 2014 Baldoni started the annual Carnival of Love with a mission to improve the way the Los Angeles community views and interacts those experiencing homelessness. To support his work on Skid Row, he started the Wayfarer Foundation, which supports his work breaking the cycle of homelessness and supporting individuals facing terminal illness.

After creating and directing the award-winning documentary series, My Last Days, Baldoni made his feature film directorial debut in 2019 with Five Feet Apart. He also produced the film, which went on to crush box office predictions and has grossed over $80 million worldwide. Baldoni will next direct Clouds for Warner Bros.

As an entrepreneur, Baldoni also co-founded Wayfarer Entertainment-a cause-driven media studio focused on creating content that highlights inspiration, unity, and the power of human connection.

Baldoni currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
