I'm a philosopher working where metaphysics meets the theory of representation; on topics like truth, fiction, realism, reference, existence, identity, and indeterminacy. Right now I'm writing about personal identity and conceptual change.

I was an undergrad at Harvard and got my PhD from Princeton. After that, I visited NYU a couple of times and taught at Stanford for seven years. Now I'm an LA-based philosopher for hire, having visited CMC, UCLA, and next year, Pomona. You can always reach me via gmail at alexiburgess.

My partner, Anna Fishko, writes for TV. This is our daughter, Ruby.
