Working with California’s former First Lady Maria Shriver from 2003-2010 as Executive Producer, Bendix helped transform The Women’s Conference from a simple one day event into a televised three day spectacle encompassing twenty-three live events, a tradeshow, and an awards show for over twenty-five thousand attendees.

He unites artistry, innovation and passion with high-quality production values and fully integrates, seamless technology that turns a vision into a reality. Regardless of the scope or size, Bendix and his team anticipate every contingency, attending to each detail as an event or project enfolds.
