Ace Pai was born in 1998 in Taichung, Taiwan and moved to Vancouver, Canada at the age of 9. 
Her interest in photography developed at a young age when she would travel around the world with her parents to see breathtaking sights that astonished her.

Her love of art, fashion, and nature lead her to start learning photography on her own. She is deeply inspired by the world of commercial, yet at the same time she loves to capture moments of daily life and authentic happenings. Through photography she has learnt to appreciate the little moments in life and the importance of being present.

Ace spent her freshman year in Florence, Italy and fell in love with this renaissance city. She decided to continue her junior year studies in NYU Florence, and will be returning to New York in her senior year.
