Alumnus Appears in National AT&T Commercial

Posted on: June 4, 2013


Genesis Oliver Doyle, a 2006 Journalism grad, recently appeared in a national commercial for AT&T in conjunction with Amtrak. The spot ran during the Master’s Golf Tournament.

After graduating from CAS, Doyle decided to pursue a career in the performing arts. He spent the following year as an apprentice at the Actors’ Theatre of Louisville, Ky. Following his apprenticeship, Oliver was awarded a full scholarship at the National Theatre Conservatory in Denver, Colo. In 2011, he graduated with his master’s degree and has been living in New York City for the last year and a half.

Doyle said during his time at MSU, he learned something that has continued to be of great value.

“I learned how to take a risk,” Doyle said. “One of my journalism professors made me realize you can’t always play it safe. Instincts are there for a reason and it’s okay to trust them. My time at MSU was instrumental in helping me grow as an individual and making me a better citizen of the world.”
