Hi, I’m Will Beason.
I’m a 26-year-old kinky gay data scientist in San Francisco, and I’m going to change the world with my ideas on cybernetics.
It’s been an interesting road to get here. No signs of slowing down or stopping soon.
I wrote my first lines of Python code at age 13, excited to join the Civilization 4 modding community. In middle school I played with websites and procedural art algorithms. I explored R and C++ in college, landing one summer gig as a biostatistician and another as an intern at Los Alamos. Out of college I worked on natural-language processing for IBM Watson, machine learning for Google Research, and crash clustering for Firebase. I started as a data scientist for Ascendify late 2017. I never got around to that modding.
At 20 I started exploring my sexuality, and I came out to my family as a gay slut a year later. I plunged into the leather community at the very end of 2016, making fast friends with men who were very willing to help me explore my interests. I’m now a regular at kink education and play events, a budding new member of the community.
I have a boyfriend in Austin I don’t see often enough. I befriended him four years ago and we kept in touch after I moved away. He’s been an important part of my life most of this year, and we’ve been officially together for three months. He’s supportive, and always excited to hear of my latest ventures.
