Michael Shepherd is an interesting pizzaiolo.

As he explains on his website:

From humble beginnings as a delivery driver for a national chain to the owner of three independent pizzerias, he has over 20 years of experience in the pizza business. Growing his original pizzeria from a meager $2,000 per week to over $1 million dollars a year in sales in a town of only 8,000 and opening his newest pizzeria at the $1.2 million sales mark in a town of 13,000 with an advertising budget of nearly zero.


I interviewed Michael at the International Pizza Expo. He was getting ready to set up all of the games. He was busy with these tasks the entire Pizza Expo.
