Our story

We founded S2C Pacific shortly after leaving careers in law and politics in Washington, DC. We aim to take the many lessons we learned on Capitol Hill, in respected law firms, and with ambitious think tanks and put them to use for people engaged in visionary work in California, across the country, and around the world.

We are political pragmatists, technology optimists, and environmental modernists. We think that economic, energy, and security priorities can be met in balance with environmental goals, and that technology and innovation can solve any problem, but only when properly aligned with practical policies and consistent regulatory frameworks.
