Wil Renderos, Digital Media Consultant
After working in the non-profit sector on public health, youth engagement, and violence prevention initiatives, Wil founded Audio Chemists to support organizations and individuals in using digital media to promote their stories, enhance their work, and advance their mission. His approach goes beyond just crafting audio or video projects. For each project, he works closely with clients to develop strategies that define the vision and goals, guide the production process, and address any challenges. For organizations, this may include identifying creative ways to use digital media as part of an evaluation or technical assistance strategy, or to communicate the impact of their work to community stakeholders. For musicians, this may include thinking through how to capture the music and videos in a way that align with the sonic vision and artistry.
Wil brings to Audio Chemists years of experience and expertise in youth development, health equity, and digital media production. He has served as a sexual health educator, community organizer, and youth program manager at community-based organizations throughout Massachusetts, including, Roca, Inc., The City School, Suffolk University Center for Restorative Justice, Centro Presente, and Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy. Some of his responsibilities have included leading outreach efforts, designing trainings on health and wellness, implementing youth engagement and evidence-based programming, overseeing program evaluations, and leading violence prevention and community mobilization campaigns. He has also worked at JSI Research & Training Institute, a public health consulting nonprofit, where he worked on federally-funded projects designed to promote public health campaigns, provide technical assistance and training to grantee organizations, and coordinate digital media strategies.
