I used to work with (not for) Dave Rushton. In fact, I was one of his first “shady hires” for a company that he was developing while still under employment at Saffire. Yeah…he hired me and Joe Olson to work at his brother’s company Saffire, and apparently he had no permission to do so, because a month or 2 after working in the dark recesses of the office, the higher ups started asking who these “mystery hires” were. We didn’t know anything was wrong, Joe and I were working on Saffire games, Justice Leage, the Hobbit, etc…we had no clue that we were being trained for the sole purpose of being yanked away when Dave felt the timing was right.
Well, once Saffire realized that Dave had started his own company with their resources, they fired him and offered to let Joe and I keep our jobs. And even after telling Dave as he was rushed from the building that I was not interested in following him on his “hobo Chef Boyardee” adventures, that wasn’t the last I heard of Dave. For years, he kept in touch, continually trying to get me to work for his company, Sensory Sweep.
Now, I should be clear, Dave is a nice guy, but I knew he was shady. So even after quitting Saffire, I remained firm in my choice to not take up employment at his company. So, I was not shocked to hear the other day that he owes an excess of $500,000 to his employees and will be thrown in jail. I feel grateful that I dodged a bullet, but sad for all of my friends and acquaintances that got screwed. So for you, I drew this…
…your tiny Trex-armed former boss, Dave Rushton.
