Although I have seen numerous CSL holders pull permits for jobs they are not involved in, I definitely would not do it. The holder of the license is responsible for seeing that the work is performed in compliance with the building code. If a building inspector finds out you are not on the job, you could get in trouble with the BBRS and have your license suspended or worse. It is a really bad idea.

You will be at risk for any job you pull a permit on. Charge him a fee and supervise the other projects.
