Soji is a Brunel Univeristy Graduate who lives in London. He started fencing aged 10 after being introduced to Camden Fencing Club by a friend. He instantly fell in love with the sport and under the guidance of coach Ian Williams his passion has never stopped. Soji finds a great deal of satisfaction giving his time back to the club where he passes on his fantastic knowledge as a coach to beginner fencers.

He rates gaining a 2:1 grade as a Bachelor of Science in Sports Science as one of his greatest non-sporting achievements. He was an active member of his university fencing team, winning a medal at the British University Championships.

Soji supports Liverpool Football Club and he is also a regular player for his Monday night 5-a-side team, Pat Rice & Peas.
