Michael Buccowich, Clerk

Vocation: Senior Digital Content Strategist, The Capital Group

Hometown: Lynwood CA

Background: Mike holds a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from UCLA, was a financial advisor for 15 years and now uses his business knowledge to write digital content for a Los Angeles-based investment company. He also serves on the boards of directors for Emmanuel Church and the Camp Angelus Tract Land Association.

Family: Mike has three terrific children, a daughter and two sons, and a beautiful daughter-in-law. Mike and his wife Susan were married 28 years; she passed away from brain cancer in 2013.

What do you hope the Compton Initiative will accomplish? “I hope that over our 40-year mission and beyond, the people of Compton will see their city in a better light than they have in the past, will derive hope from the love demonstrated by our work and will care more for themselves and for each other.”

What is your favorite thing about a Compton work day? “I enjoy that moment after four hours of hard work when it’s hard to know who feels better about what we accomplished, the grateful homeowner or the satisfied volunteers.”

How has the Compton Initiative helped you grow? “I have learned that you will enrich your life and the lives of others when you engage for good with people who are different than you.”
