Rumor is that Zach is actually a younger reincarnation of Avi Kaplan.
John Michael Wright goes by many names. His
friends call him "John Michael." The street calls him "White
Chocolate." Ladies call him "not my type." Carly Rae Jepsen
calls him maybe. And he calls himself when he loses his phone. He is a senior
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major accepted into Ohio University's
Heritage College of Medicine. He sings because his heart is full of joy; he
joined Ottertuned two years ago as a chance to share that joy with others. His
free time is consumed almost entirely by naps, but he makes sure to set alarms
for involvement with the Otterbein Christian Fellowship, board games with close
friends (and strangers), Rick and Morty (the best show on TV), and Rock City
