Mr. Gold obtained his law degree (Juris Doctorate) in 1999, from the University of LaVerne, College of Law.

In 1993, Mr. Gold earned a Master of Science degree in Macomb, Illinois at Western Illinois University. This advanced degree focused primarily on macro-level administration.

At the conclusion of the internship program, Mr. Gold became the first full-time, paid employee of that organization. Today, Mr. Gold remains an avid cyclist.
He received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1991, from Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins, Colorado.
