Q&A: Interview with Nick Groff from 'Ghost Adventures'

Nick posing with the old hospital behind himDealing with real-life tragedy and overcoming a few negative spirit attachments including an on-camera possession, Nick Groff from the Travel Channel's “Ghost Adventures” somehow got his groove back.

 “The wheels of my mind are always spinning and I feel like I'm in such a positive place in my life right now from everything I experienced in the paranormal world,” he says backstage during his Groff Entertainment “Drinks On Me” event with rapper extraordinaire Less-On at the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston.“The show is successful now going into season nine. It just flew by. I had no idea it would be what it is now.”
After nine seasons chasing ghosts on national TV, Groff says he's learned one important lesson: “Positive and negative energies really do exist and they can have a major effect on you and your well being,” he says, minutes before going onstage to introduce a series of acts on the Hard Rock Cafe stage. Groff, currently based in nearby New Hampshire and returning to the Travel Channel on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 9 p.m., says he doesn't feel pigeonholed as the alpha male investigator known for his ballsy and sometimes confrontational approach to lockdowns with on-air pals Zak Bagans and Aaron Goodwin .

“I've always had a passion for music, films and, obviously, TV and other stuff that sparks a fire within me. It's inspired me to look further.” Armed with a successful gym project in Metheun called Drive Health and Fitness and his new Groff Entertainment record label, Groff chats about his close encounters with the paranormal kind, his experiences in the Boston area including the infamous lockdown at Salem's Witch House and reflects on his less confrontational, yet still edgy, approach to chasing spirits.
