Creative Student Productions


Tim Tisdall

Personal Comment: Since the inception of Creative Student Productions I've seen my skills in graphic design, project management, web page design, and computer program improve. I must admit some of my improvement in those areas are due to other jobs other than CSP, but all of them contribute greatly to my effectiveness with CSP.
