On a personal level, Wil Master began his Humanitarian journey in the wake of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11th in NYC. Only 5 days prior, he was hired to run a Film & TV Media Company from those very same Twin Towers, and consequently, as that dream quickly crumbled, Wil’s passion for humanity heightened, and he would become one of only a few civilians selected to participate in the Honor Guard Ceremony for helping the NYPD, PAPD and FDNY locate and carry out fallen colleagues from Ground Zero.
From there, Wil has received numerous American Red Cross Certificates of Appreciation as a First Responder to some of the largest natural disasters in history: Hurricanes Katrina (2005), Sandy (2012), Harvey (2017), Dorian (2019) and multiple CA Wildfires.
He currently resides in Beverly Hills, CA where he is a local award-winning event producer, fundraiser and civic leader – co-Founder and co-Chair of the Mayor’s Next Generation Leaders Committee – NEXT BEVERLY HILLS and is the Community Ambassador in Beverly Hills for the American Red Cross.
