Andy is a former professional athlete turned oil broker who currently runs a successful business which he co-founded called Aalpha Energy, part of OTC Global Holdings the largest independent commodities brokerage in the world.


Andy is also a master practitioner of NLP, a mindfulness based awareness coach and is currently studying for a master’s degree in both positive psychology and coaching psychology.

As part of this alcohol free process Andy also decided to change his diet, which led to a vegan


Andy’s unique background, education and experience of running OneYearNoBeer make him one of the world’s leading habit change experts.
