On 6/28/17 he said on Twitter:
PSA: I'm all caught up on @PSLiterary queries! Didn't hear from me? Feel free to re-query! Remember, I moved last month. It's been hectic!

So if you queried before 6/28 and didn't hear back, may want to re-send query.

Pitched in person at Atlanta Writer's Conference on Feb. 25. Said to send an email to say hi and the query.
Query emailed on March 23.
Full request on April 3.
Rejection received May 5 but he wanted to pass it along to the rest of his agency.

Received auto e-mail when submitting a query. "If we are interested in seeing material we normally respond within 4-6 weeks. If you have not heard from us after 4-6 weeks, you may assume we have reviewed your query and determined that your project is not the best fit for our agency."

So, assume no news after 6 weeks is a "no".
