My name is Alberto Hogan but I am better known as Tito. I was born in Miami, Florida however from the age of eleven I have spent my life growing up in Dublin, Ireland. I have been living in Galway now for about 2 years where I have developed my skills as a wood worker.
From a young age I had a strong interest and skill in drawing and enjoyed designing and imagining characters, worlds and machines.
This love for art and creativity carried on through my adolescence and into college where I studied multimedia and animation. With this new knowledge and experience of digital mediums I went on to work freelancing in various computer graphic roles such as, graphic design, 3d architectural modelling and conceptual arts.
It was around 2009 that I began to take a strong interest in self-sufficiency and sustainability which led me to learn more traditional skills like Permaculture and Bushcraft. It was through these experiences that I got a taste for wood carving.
Merging my new found passion and skills with something else I love very much… Food. I found myself to be Tito, the Galway spoon maker.
A professional maker of kitchen tools and equipment.
