Simon Elliott - Portfolio
My friends call me Psy (sigh) and I'm a qualified web developer. I graduated from Northumbria University in July 2011 with First Class Honours in Web Design & Development.
I've been running my own personal websites for over 12 years, and have 7 years commercial experience, but that doesn't stop me from trying to learn something new every single day.
At the end of July 2012 I moved away from the fansite network I created and began a job with Rockstar North as a web developer, focusing mainly on Rockstar Games Social Club.
After 2 exciting years with Rockstar Games I decided to move in a slightly different direction and began learning how to create apps and games for iOS with Objective-C and SpriteKit. Since June 2014 I have been developing my own game and engine from scratch for iOS which is intended for release in early 2015.

Alongside developing websites, I have also created a number of other media elements including videos, images and audio. Below is a selection of my favourites.
Captured video from the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV and edited tens of hours of footage together. Created May 26, 2008. Source.
Captured video from the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV and created a compilation of the best bits. Created September 25, 2008. Source.
Using audio taken from Grand Theft Auto IV, I re-ordered and edited it to create an MP3 file which closely follows the story of the game. The video below was created by a fan of my audio file and features my original audio. I used the song "Now We Are Free" by Enya and Hans Zimmer from the Gladiator soundtrack. Created May 18, 2009.

Video captured from the PS2 version of GTA San Andreas. This video was re-uploaded by a fan. Created Dec 13, 2004. Source.

Who Is Psy?
I'm just a guy who enjoys the web and loves creating my own part of it. I'm qualified, I've spent thousands of hours perfecting my programming and design skills and I have plenty of experience, both personal and commercial.
