After graduating with a Master's degree in 1990, Gould tried his hand at feature film writing, making his debut with the action-comedy movie "Double Dragon" (1994).

His first major job on the small screen came with Vince Gilligan's critically acclaimed drama series "Breaking Bad" (AMC 2008-2013), on which he served as writer and, eventually, producer.

While attached to the program, Gould wrote the script for the TV movie "Too Big to Fail" (HBO 2011), a dramatization of the American financial crisis of 2008.
