Agencies: Re:Quest New York
Tell us about your background and how were you discovered (to be a model). I am Jamaican, raised in Brooklyn, NY. A very cultural, West Indian neighborhood. Being discovered was actually like a domino effect. My twin brother Torey McDonald was in the city in SoHo hanging out then later on he called me and said someone from a modelling agency scouted him. He then told him that he has a twin, then after that I was stoked because I always wanted to get into that as a career.
What are you up to these days besides modelling? Besides modelling, my brother and I DJ together and make cool, calm, wavy mixes you can find on our Soundcloud (Torey and Khorey McDonald).
Your hobbies? Being active is my biggest hobby. I’m always in the gym working out or in the park getting my cardio on or playing basketball. I also love food; I majored in culinary arts in high school, which helped my skills a lot.
What do you enjoy the most about being a model? What I enjoy most about modelling is that in order to be a model you have maintain a healthy lifestyle, it’s a win/win. Also being in front of the camera and wearing all these different cool outfits and trends, I love to make any fit look good.
What made you want to give modelling a try? What made me give modelling a chance was just because I knew I can be great model, I was always compared to top models in the industry before I started, so I thought why not be one of the greats
What is the downside of modelling? The downside of modelling is the experiences you have to go through because you won’t get every job and getting there takes time. You work hard and manifest your talents to be great.
What would you be doing if you were not modelling now? If I wasn’t modelling, I would probably be still running track and field religiously. Track and field is a sport you give your all and your life and heart to.
Your best modeling experience to date? My best modelling experience was going overseas to Milan with my twin brother Torey. The architecture and scenery were like a dream or a movie. I always dreamy to go there especially after watching The Italian Job.
TV junkie or movie addict? I am more of a movie addict.
Your idol? My idol I would say is Kobe Bryant. I know I don’t play basketball professionally but he is one great player. He never complained, just stayed on path, and stayed the greatest. Confidence and dedication take you all the way.
Tell us about your personality? How do you describe your character? I am very calm and upbeat and always in a good mood. Spreading positivity and love are all this world needs and I’m one of them that spreads that.
What's your style? My style is very clean and organised and sharp like an arrow. I get hip here and there just because I love to rock that cosy look, like for instance, I’d rock some calm sweats and Jordans, and some Supreme.
What's on your current music playlist? Vroom by Madeintyo, Nasty by Skepta, Big Racks by Young Thug featuring Lil Uzi Vert, Zhu by Cocaine Model, and Enter Galactic by Kid Cudi.
Any guilty pleasures? A guilty pleasure I have is probably the need to eat at night and it won't be the healthiest of foods. I love pastries and Tate's Cookies.
Three cities / countries that you want to travel soon? London, Paris, and Brazil
Your life motto? Starve your distractions and feed your focus. Good Vibes Only.
