Live from Havana

I joined the NBC Nightly News crew in Havana during coverage of the Aug. 14 opening of the U.S. embassy.
My duties ranged from helping with story ideas and setting up interviews to translating and, yes, holding the umbrella to make sure NBC correspondent Gabe Gutierrez didn't get his jacket wet.
It was fun working behind the scenes. Thanks to Lester Holt, Mary Murray, Kim Cornett, Krista Brunson, Sandra Lilley, Kevin Bond, Joe Hoerdemann and many others who made me feel welcome.
