Nick Groff was born in San Jose, California and raised in New England. He has been fascinated with the paranormal since childhood, because of his passion for horror movies and some inexplicable experiences within his home and family. Two years after a near-death experience, while at home alone, he says he saw a ghostly black figure. In a 2012 interview, Groff questioned, "Was it my imagination? Or was it something from my accident that made me more open to their world?"
"Ghost Adventures" was his first paranormal TV project, which he co-created, co-hosted and executive produced for ten seasons (2008-2014). He worked on many projects in different fields, like writing his autobiography book titled "Chasing Spirits: The Building of the Ghost Adventures Crew" (2012).
Among his past important film projects there is the movie he wrote and directed, "Malevolence" (2004), and the TV shows he executive produced: Travel Channel's "Vegas Stripped" (2012) and Destination America's "Ghost Stalkers" (2014). His next show "Paranormal Lockdown" first premiered on March 4th, 2016 on Destination America, breaking the ratings records of the network. It has been such a success that it was renewed for a second and third season and aired on TLC/ID Discovery/Destination America. In 2019 Paranormal Lockdown UK aired on QuestRed in the UK, which was a huge success in the United Kingdom helping the Discovery Inc. International channels. Paranormal Lockdown is airing world-wide.
Another show he has worked on was Destination America's "Ghosts of Shepherdstown" (2016), where he was called to assist the Shepherdstown, WV, police department with his expertise in the paranormal field.
In 2020 his new project “DEATH WALKER” series was announced and debuted in 2022. Groff’s projects are syndicated in over 50 countries world-wide and he travels the world in search of discovering new findings within the unknown.
