Emailed me the day after my submission to say he liked the sound of my book. However, he did not offer representation.

I saw that QueryTracker has him listed as Snail-Mail only, but his profile on his agency's site requests queries via email. I went with the agency's preferences and EQ'd him. Within about 4 hours, he emailed me back with a request for chapters.
