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.

I'm experienced with PHP and ASP.Net C# programming languages, MySQL and MSSQL databases and other technologies like Javascript, jQuery, AJAX, XML, CSS and Flash. If there's something I don't know, chances are I can pick it up pretty quickly.

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.

Other Work

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.

Video: Free Mode Stunting

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.

Video: Multiplayer Mayhem

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.

Audio: Niko's Story

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: San Andreas Stunting

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