Edit: 02/08/2023 Very nice personalized rejection saying he doesn’t take much fiction anymore, but pointed me in the direction of some editors I could submit to. A real class act, I would submit to again if I ever did nonfiction!

Bumping this in case anyone is looking. I do not have personal experience with him, but he reps Elayne Angel. If you don't know, Elayne Angel (The Piercing Bible) and is a BIG DEAL in the piercing industry. When I say big, I mean ENORMOUS. She's pretty much one of the founders of the modern piercing industry and is the person who came up with a large number of genital piercings. I know that's an odd thing to be excited about, but I'm a body piercer and own a tattoo studio that's been around for going on 24 years. Elayne is an absolutely lovely human and I've interacted with her at several tattoo conventions as well as had the opportunity to take several of her courses through the yearly APP convention. I have both versions of her book, the most recent updated last year. I require all of my apprentices to read her book and go over it with me. He has my vote solely based on representing her!
