———————————————————————
IN CONVERSATION|MATTHEW McGUE

Name|Matthew McGue
Age|23
Hometown|Norwalk, Ohio

How did you get discovered?
I was at Put 'N' Bay, which is a small island in Lake Erie where a lot  of drinking goes down. I was at one of the swim up bars when a fellow model approached me and asked if I was one. I replied "no"  and as most fellow drinkers know, the drunk conversation started between us and jokingly I brushed it off until the next day I got a call from a model scout that heard about me from the drunk model I had met. He asked if I would meet him in New York, which I did, interested to see if I could becomes one. The scout shopped me around to all the agencies he knew but they all turned me down, saying I was too big to actually model. So that in turn pushed me to slim down and prove to all these agencies that I could be one and be a successful one, and here I am!
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was studying recreational therapy at the university of Toledo and bouncing at the local college bars there!

am the baby of five children and all my older siblings are girls! Yes, a lot of sisters!

Sushi, just started liking it! Another one, finding more fashionable style for myself!

My college degree certificate and my grandfather's arrow that he gave me before he passed.

If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?

How did you get discovered?
It was my third day in New York on September 2013 and I was walking outside Whole Foods at Union Square. My mother agent, Demanti O'Bryant walked up to me and asked me which agency I was from. I had no idea what he was talking about, and I didn't really see myself as a model material type. It took me two months to get back to him to schedule a meeting.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
Before modeling, I was about to start school here in New York City majoring in Fashion Marketing at Berkeley (Not to confuse with the one in California but the one in NYC!)

am a great salsa dancer

Hawaii, I really want to move there one day!
Your most prize possession?
The golden necklace I got from my baptism
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
My dad. He was my first and biggest role model because he always took me to his workplace and taught me most of the things I know today.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
I said it to my mom just yesterday

If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
I would have a sitcom about people having a lot of  money and still complain about the smallest stuff like whether you should take the red or yellow Ferrari. Song is I'm Rich by Red Cafe
