Catching up with Elliott Mazzola ’09 (in photo) isn’t easy. Often it can take several emails and a few pokes on Facebook to get him to respond. And, when he finally does, you might get something back like this:
“Hi, Sandy, sorry for the delay. I’ve just come back from the Cannes Film Festival and I am moving to Berlin tomorrow, where I will be skydiving for the summer.”
Or, the adventurer, who lives in France, will just show up in the Wheaton Communications Office in Norton, Mass., on a random October afternoon, as he passes through town on his way to California to rack up some hours skydiving in preparation for maybe one day trying out BASE jumping (from a fixed object, using a parachute to break the fall).
