Nick Groff has been enraptured by the supernatural as long as anyone – including himself – can remember. He is an American musician, producer, television personality, and researcher of paranormal phenomena. Nick has many interests, but he is known almost exclusively for his efforts to track down and investigate paranormal events.
In 2004 he became executive producer, cameraman, and editor of a documentary called Ghost Busters. He was also part of the cast as a co-investigator. In 2008 he began work on a television series of the same name. In this series he took on the same roles and responsibilities from the documentary, in which he was involved for ten seasons, culminating in 2014.
During his time with the Ghost Busters, Nick was also involved in many other projects, most of which tended towards the paranormal. In 2016 he started his television series Paranormal Lockdown. He has also produced several films, released several music albums, and collaborated with other networks and channels such as Travel Channel, TLC, and Destination America.
Nick Groff Early Life, Family Tragedy
Nicholas Groff was born on April 19, 1980, in San Jose, California. However, he grew up in Nashua, New Hampshire. Nick’s interest in the supernatural goes back to his childhood. Nick revealed that he had a near-death experience at the age of eight. He was playing in a tree in the yard of his parent’s house when he fell to the ground from a branch of the tree.
At the age of ten, young Nick told of an apparition of a black man. He believes that his accident at the age of eight had made him more open and receptive to the supernatural. He attended Pelham High School in New Hampshire, then attended the University of Nevada and graduated with a degree in film.

Nicholas met Zak Bagans in 2004, and the two got along well after they discovered their common interest in paranormal activities. They started out together as DJ and cameraman for weddings until they decided to become a team of paranormal investigators. They hired for this and had to hire an extra hand, so they chose Aaron Goodwin, who was a colleague of Groff’s from his time at the University of Nevada.
In 2004, the trio began searching for evidence of paranormal activity in some of the scariest places in Nevada and began shooting a documentary. Soon, their work was noticed by some producers and critics, who rated them positively. Nick and his friends from Ghost Adventurers soon got a contract for their own show to be broadcast on the travel channel. During the show, Nick once claimed to have seen a female ghost when they were filming at Linda Vista Hospital in Los Angeles. This experience and several others helped to strengthen his belief in the afterlife.
The series was called “Ghost Adventurers” and premiered on October 17, 2008. Nick Groff was the executive producer and co-investigator for ten seasons, with the tenth season of the series set for 2014. This was his last season in any capacity on the show. After leaving the show, Nick Groff created another show called Ghost Stalkers for Destination America. However, the show could not continue the success of his previous efforts and only lasted six episodes.

His last effort in the world of the paranormal came on March 4, 2016, when he premiered his new show Paranormal Lockdown at his destination America.

Here he played the role of an expert on paranormal phenomena, who was called in to assist the police department in cases involving paranormal phenomena.
Why Nick Groff Left Ghost Adventurers

Reports indicate that Nick had planned a new show with the channel that had been courting him and found no way to resolve the scheduling issues between them and the Travel Channel, so the only option was to leave the show.
