Comments & ID Thoughts

I’d be interested to know what spider I just found crawling aross my bed. I live in the Mojave Desert of Southern California. I suspect it could be a male Black Widow, but I know very little about spiders and would appreciate an ID on this one. I mostly want to know if they’re venomous and if I should expect more. Thanks.
