Dr.Kupeyan was born in the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Damascus, and was raised in the then peaceful country of Lebanon. He received his elementary and secondary education in Syria and Lebanon respectively. His undergraduate and seminary education was received in Australia and the United States. He is an ordained priest in the Armenian Church.

Dr. Kupeyan is part of the second generation of survivors of the Genocide of Armenians. He was brought up hearing and listening to the eyewitness accounts of the Genocide. Most of his great uncles and all of his great-grandparents were massacred by the Ottoman Turks, with the women and children driven into exile with the deliberate attempt to have them killed in the desert or drown in the Euphrates River. He lives with his family in the Albany Capital district, and lectures widely on the Armenian Genocide.
