Lach received his B.A. in mass communications and film from the University of South Florida and resides in Saint Petersburg, Florida. In the past three years, Lach has created immersive experiences that have touched the lives of more than four million people. This past summer, he participated in Dive 2000, the most recent expedition to Titanic's wreck site, where he lived and worked aboard the Russian vessel, Keldysch, and dove to the wreck site aboard the submersible Mir. "Traveling to the wreck site was the most incredible adventure of my life. Seeing her for the first time from the tiny porthole of the submersible was truly awe-inspiring. I was overcome with excitement and powerful emotion. Through the exhibitions, I have shared Titanic's story with so many people and to see her in front of me was unforgettable. Now having seen her face-to-face, I have a renewed commitment and feel a tremendous responsibility to tell the story of Titanic in a way that conveys dignity and honor to her passengers and crew." Titanic's wreck is located 2 1/2 miles below the ocean's surface and 400 miles off the coast of Newfoundland. On the night of April 15, 1912, more than 2,000 people died in the disaster that shook the world. To reach the wreck site, Lach dove for more than 12 hours traveling in a small, 3person submersible.
