Dale Cupido

Dale Cupido is the Moscow co-ordinator for the First African in Space project and has been commuting between Cape Town and Moscow since November 2001.

Dale has been with Interactive Africa, the company project-managing the FAIS project, since 1998, after completing his studies in Marketing and Sales at Cape Technikon. He is the company’s advertising manager and is currently studying Business Science part-time through the University of Stellenbosch.

Dale also embarked on a hectic exercise programme in Moscow and is becoming even more of a gladiator than before.

During his spare time, you'll find him either on the golf course or in the gym training. He also spends a lot of time at the library (seriously!) His favourite saying is, "The Lord loves the working man".
