Having lived in several countries around the globe as the son of Brazilian foreign-service workers, Chateaubriand ultimately graduated as a communications major, with a graphic design minor from Brigham Young University. After graduation, he moved to New York City where he lived for seven years.
While travelling in Turkey, Chateaubriand survived a nearly fatal hot-air balloon accident, which killed four occupants and injured others. He spent weeks in the hospital, where he vowed to finally pursue his passion.
After being accepted for the M.F.A Film and TV Production program at USC, he graduated in 2018 and is now committed to follow his dream of telling stories that can change the world.
