He is best known for the time that he delivered a pizza on behalf of his client, Novo Pizzeria and Wine Bar, to an out of town guest who was landing in Vancouver at 8am on a weekday and had 1.5 hour layover because the person jokingly tweeted she would like to have a breakfast pizza from Novo. Not one to disappoint, he took her request quite seriously and personally greeted the Tweeter and delivered the pizza to Vancouver’s airport.
