Andrew Trodler joins Saratoga Associates with over 19 years of experience in all phases and facets of landscape architecture throughout the Carolinas, Texas, and New York State. Andrew has worked on urban, resort, commercial, institutional, residential, golf course, and mixed-use projects. Andrew’s recent endeavors involve the use of 3D computer modeling and imaging. His role has been in creating the vision or the story of what a project holds for a better understanding by clients, stakeholders, municipalities, and consultants. If the old adage holds true, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, a model is worth a thousand pictures. Andrew’s experience has proven to be a versatile asset to any project.
Luis Mocreia joined Saratoga Associates in October. After Elementary school in New Jersey, Luis moved to Portugal where he pursued Arts in High School and ultimately received his degree in Landscape Architecture from the Universidade de Évora. After 18 years in Portugal, he decided to return to the United States. Since returning to the U.S., Luis has worked as an account manager and a project manager for various Landscape firms, ultimately leading him to Saratoga Associates where he will focus on a multitude of landscape architectural services, which include site layout and design, grading, landscape design, tree inventory and assessments, associated construction detailing, site planning and zoning analysis, stormwater management design, and preparation of graphic renderings.
Jacob Dilson joined Saratoga Associates in October as well. He received his Master of Landscape Architecture this past spring (2019), and has hit the ground running as SA’s Junior Landscape Designer. His responsibilities range from design drawings; to feasibility studies and site research; to fieldwork (some days you might find him in a forest or swamp). A native of Queens, New York, he is excited for this opportunity to enhance the state’s ecosystems and urban communities— and to channel his lifelong passion for the arts towards creating physical spaces. When he’s not working, Jacob enjoys writing, sketching, and swing dancing.
