Let’s get to know each other.

Three Crowns is a full-service marketing partner that helps launch, grow, and scale companies impacting the world through financial technology and advice.

We pride ourselves on creating growth-minded campaigns that blur the lines of traditional marketing silos in favor of custom content and engaging websites that shine a light on the modern, human experience. Some call it magic – we call it, simply, listening.

Our team knows your business. We’re practitioners who understand that impactful marketing is more than just one “big idea.” It takes a long-term strategy that scales through both traditional and nontraditional media.

Most of all, we love connecting with people. To us, that’s what it’s all about.

Johnny Sandquist Founder and CEO


Before founding Three Crowns, I went from being a high school English teacher to a content writer at Orion Advisor Services to a founding member and Content Director at Mineral Interactive. As the CEO at Three Crowns, I lead the overall strategic direction for the campaigns we execute, and most importantly, hire the best and brightest team members to bring those ideas to life. I love helping WealthTech companies refine their message and build products that are helpful to advisors. I was born and raised in Omaha and love life here with my wife, three children and dog. When I’m not working, I write poetry, play guitar, and plan for my next outdoor adventure with my family.


Zach McDonald President and CMO


As the president of Three Crowns, I’m rolling up my sleeves to work alongside our amazing clients and leading our creative team to produce marketing campaigns that drive results. I get to flex my creative muscles in a unique way every day while working with our team and clients to develop new and interesting ideas. When I’m not working, I’m probably home with my wife and four kids doing something like reading, singing, listening to music, going for a walk or just hanging out.


Amber Froendt Project Coordinator


I’m Amber Froendt and I studied project management at Bellevue University in Bellevue, Nebraska. I was born and raised in Omaha. As a project coordinator, I help manage the day-to-day workflow of our clients’ projects and keep everything on track and organized. The best part of my job is watching a client’s project come to life right before our eyes, from the very first idea to the execution and results. In my free time I like to work out, and I have a toy Australian shepherd named Stella!

Justine Young

Justine Young Senior Content Writer


I’m Justine, a creative writer from small-town Iowa. I started out at “Omaha Magazine,” where I wrote about everything from local artists to where you can buy the best fried pickle in the metro. As a content writer, I translate financial jargon into compelling copy for financial advisors and fintech companies. My perfect day would include eating dinner with the queen (i.e., Lisa Vanderpump) and the cast of the live action Scooby Doo movies. Also the dinner would consist of only ice cream. Currently, I like to spend my time playing board games, hanging out with my family, and watching all types of reality TV.


Sidney Snyder Social & Digital Media Specialist


Hey there! I’m born and raised in North Platte, Nebraska, where I met my wonderful husband, Austin. My role as a Social and Digital Media Specialist is all about building relationships and connecting with others through digital methods. I spend my days crafting Twitter posts, creating podcast assets and chatting with finance industry experts. Here are just a few of my favorite things: hiking, spending time with my family, going to the zoo, puzzles (and other mind-twisters), and learning new crafts.

Seattle Downey Account Manager


Hi! My name is Seattle, and I know that you’re wondering, but no I was not born there. I am an Account Manager with a background in marketing for financial services. As an Account Manager, it is my job to understand the wants, needs, and goals of our clients and communicate them to our talented team of creatives. I love comedy, and in my free time I perform improv at a local comedy club. Some other things I love: traveling, snuggling with my adorable dog named Moose, watching reality TV, and starting (but rarely finishing) arts and crafts projects.


Connor Brandt Graphic Designer


I first dabbled in design when I was 12 years old making sports logos in Microsoft Paint. I’m from the small town of Ponca, Nebraska, and moved to Omaha about 8 years ago to attend UNO. I’ve held a few different design jobs from small agencies, to freelance, to working in the financial industry. As a graphic designer, it’s my job to translate words and ideas into something that looks nice. I am in a band called The Real Zebos where I sing, play keys, write/produce songs, make album art, and make videos. I also enjoy root beer floats, going for walks, and watching movies.
