Chand studied in the United States, first getting a bachelor's degree in economics and ethics at the University of Oregon, followed by a master's degree at the University of California, Berkeley. He briefly worked as an economist in San Francisco before moving back to Lovia. He held an administrative position at the Blackburn University, Newhaven from 2010 to 2013, before stepping down to join politics with the Green Party. In November that year, he was elected to the Kings State Council as one of the two members representing Beaverwick, alongside fellow GP member Elliott Nielsen.
Though he is from a Hindu family, Chand himself is not religious. His wife is from an Arabic Muslim family from Thameen.
