On Twitter he posted 07/16 that he is taking an extended break from queries, although Curtis Brown homepage does not say he is closed to queries. Not sure what his status is, but maybe check him out on Twitter before you query him (alas I queried yesterday and now unsure). Not sure how this information overlaps with Patrick's info below.

Met at conference and EQ per request 6/16/18
FR 6/19/18
ER 8/6.

Rejection said only that it wasn't for him but included referral to another agent at Curtis Brown who passed the following day. Suggested an agent at Emma Sweeney but otherwise offered no feedback or comments on MS. I emailed back to thank him for his time and request feedback if possible but have not heard back.
