Goodwin is a former staff member of Genius, where he was perhaps the most prolific community member in the site's history.
Early Life & Education
William was born in Torrance, California and moved to the San Gabriel Valley at a young age. Between the ages of 5 and 10, he was obsessed with entomology, often attending meetings with the Lorquin Entomological Society at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County . 
William is on the Autism spectrum and has had difficulties learning in public settings. After an unfortunate incident where he was abused by a teacher, William shut down to traditional education and spent nearly all of his time at school doing puzzles and reading books in detention. He eventually dropped out of school.
His love for insects naturally developed into a love of patterns and William began studying semantics, semiotics, pragmatics and the like. William is a big fan of chaos, emergence, strange loops, and gettiers.
William Goodwin joined Genius in 2013 and quickly became one of the most prolific users on the site.  In May of 2016, William was hired full-time as a community specialist. He was responsible for developing community initiatives, building personal relationships with contributors, mediating conflicts, drafting site guidelines, working with the tech team to create community-driven technologies, and much more. On February 12, 2019, it was announced in a Genius forum that EwokABDevito was "no longer on staff at Genius." At the time, Goodwin had the third-highest IQ score on Genius.com, one's IQ score measures the number of contributions one has made on the platform.
In an article with WeHoTimes, Everipedia cofounder Mahbod Moghadam announced that: "Genius just fired EWOKABDEVITO – a LEGENDARY employee who was the #1 community member in Genius history. So we are trying to hire him at Everipedia and start an “EWOK EXODUS”! 
In 2007, William took a month-and-a-half long road trip through the country with SF natives, The Fucking Buckaroos; they passed through 23 states, Canada, and Mexico. The adventure was blessed—William was almost arrested for smoking weed in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, he was almost accosted by tweakers in an abandoned building on the border of El Paso, Texas, he was courted by Walt Curtis, the poet laureate of Oregon, he had midnight roman candle fights with Appalachian squatters in Indianapolis and he even threw up on the steps of the Alamo after being bitten by over 60 mosquitoes in Louisiana. It was on this journey that William learned he loved meeting people and experiencing new things.
After living in Upstate New York for a year and discovering the yearly migration of "Cricket frogs " near his apartment, William fell in love with frogs. He is now the proud owner of two Phyllomedusa hypochondrialis , or tiger-legged monkey frogs. William also has a cat named Ewok A.B. Devito (the A.B. stands for "Angry Boner") who lives with his father in Northern California.
