About 

My name is Stephen Helms and I graduated with a bachelor of architecture from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I moved to San Diego, CA to start work with Ferguson Pape Baldwin Architects. I was employed at FPBA for about 2-3 years, but decided to explore other fields of architecture. I currently work at Baker Nowicki Design Studio in downtown San Diego. I have been at BNDS for about 6 months and am thoroughly enjoying my time here. I look forward to contributing to the studio environment and am eager to advance my professional career.
