Justin Baldoni is an American actor, director and co-founder of Wayfarer Entertainment.[1]


In 2008, Baldoni wrote, produced, and directed his first music video that was selected and showcased at the Dawn Breakers International Film Festival. Shortly thereafter Baldoni directed a short film entitled "The Walk to Fame" for Warner Brothers artist Jason Derulo and various music videos for Brendan James and S-Curve artist Andy Grammer.

He recently partnered with SoulPancake and Emmy-nominated actor Rainn Wilson to create a documentary series titled "My Last Days." The show focuses on people who are terminally ill, but refuse to give up on life. Justin hopes the show will inspire people to stop taking the time we have left for granted, and begin to appreciate what truly matters. "You don't have to find out you're dying to start living."

Private life

Baldoni was born in Los Angeles, California, and was raised in Medford, Oregon, the son of Sharon and Sam Baldoni. His mother is Jewish and his father is of Italian ancestry. Baldoni was raised in the Bahá'í Faith.

Baldoni played soccer and ran track in high school, and was a radio disc jockey at a local top 40 radio station. Unfortunately, his hopes of playing professional sports were foiled when he tore his hamstring his senior year. Even with his injury, Baldoni was offered a place on the Long Beach State track team his freshman year at California State University. However, he was not able to fully rehabilitate his hamstring in time, and Baldoni left Long Beach for Los Angeles. While moving into a new apartment building, Baldoni met a manager who advised him to pursue a career in acting. He married Swedish actress Emily Foxler in July 2013. They have a daughter named Maiya Grace Baldoni who is born on June 27, 2015 and a son named Maxwell Ronald-Samuel Baldoni who is born on October 18, 2017.
