Mr. Kepner appears to be a one-man shop. Despite very polite requests for status Feb. 25, 2020 and June 30, 2020, I received no reply. I would not recommend this agency.

Chris Kepner appears to have started his agency in 2017, and his website has a 2017-2020 copyright, but his website doesn't have a list of successfully represented books or authors.
