Rejected by an assistant, Kristy Hunter, form letter.
1 day response, 75k contemp comedy/drama.

Assuming he told this assistant to look for specified criteria in a submission, which might be a lot of blanket rejections.

2/08 What began as a semi-detailed R, after some very helpful emailing back and forth Travis gave me suggestions for revisions and invited me to submit full after the revisions were complete.
Full sent 3/13

6/07 So...just heard back from Travis. He had great things to say about my MS, but is stepping away from YA for now, so he passed my query on to his associate, Janna Bonikowski. She then asked him to send along my full, which she is now reviewing. So, a R from Travis, but there's still hope!

Through all of our correspondence, Travis has been amazing! Kind, thoughtful, going way above and beyond. Anyone would be lucky to have him for an agent!

He sent me an email on Sept. 12th saying that he wanted to discuss rep and he asked me a few questions. I responded with a number of follow up questions a few days later, but I haven't heard back from him. Sounds like he ghosted me.

Query quickly returned (1 day) from Kristy Hunter, submissions assistant.. "Unfortunately, after carefully reviewing your query, we’ve determined that this particular project isn’t the right fit for our agency at this time."
