@raktinope I had queried him back at the beginning of September via the form on his website, which worked at the time :/

@amandajlien How did you query him? I'm having the same problem with his query button as @katienewton

FQ: 9/5/21 (He DMed me on Twitter last summer with interest)
Full Request: 8/27/21

I understand he's not at Curtis Brown anymore (per @slcody's comment) but since he's requesting fulls, I'm inclined to believe he's still agenting, though his social media doesn't state where

@morenerdthanperson: I don't think anything dodgy is going on. He was listed on their website the last time I looked (a few weeks ago), and he has more than 20 deals listed on Publishers Marketplace. I assume he recently left Curtis Brown and just hasn't updated his social media yet to indicate whether he's joining another agency or leaving agenting entirely.

I was about to query him, but noticed that while he claimed he was working at Curtis Brown and the submission form his Twitter profile linked to looked like it belonged to Curtis Brown, he is not listed on the official Curtis Brown website and his submission form doesn't exist within the Curtis Brown website (unlike other Curtis Brown agents' forms).
I emailed Curtis Brown asking if he was still an agent with them, and they said no. I have no idea what is going on here, but it looks dodgy. I'd stay away.

Queried him back in July of 2020. Never heard back. I understand lit agents are busy but I hate it when they don't show the modicum of professionalism by responding that they're not interested.
