About me

debbie thompson kippel

The English Explorer

Debbie Thompson Kippel grew up with a passport in one hand and her camera in the other. She has been photographing weddings, portraits, events, and travel for over 16 years and has worked in the television and video production industry for over 20 years. She currently produces programming for various media outlets and hosts two television programs, along with managing her own photography and media production company. Her passion for photography and media production takes her around the world, and her passport always has room for one more stamp.

Debbie lives in the Sacramento, California Area with her husband and two little boys.


The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. Saint Augustine
