Spryte Loriano grew up in Milwaukee, WI, the youngest of six. She was raised by a single mom, who became her professional and philanthropic Muse. An early award-winning entrepreneur and living penthouse-large in Southern California, by age 31, Spryte entered her dark night of the soul that landed her divorced, diagnosed with in “incurable” disease, devoid of money, a car, a home, and smack in the heart of Los Angeles as a waitress! Her “destiny tap” (as she learned to love it), led to the discovery of her inner artist, and reconnection to the spiritual journey she began at age 4 when she began communicating with Angels. She became a devout seeker of inner wisdom diving into spiritual study and practice of many holistic healing modalities. She became trained as a SHEN Emotional Trauma and Personal Empowerment Therapist, developed sacred sexuality workshops and was witness and conduit to incredible “miracles” for herself and her clients.
In 2006 a vision emerged to Feed 3 Million Children in the US in 33 Days. She and her volunteer board launched FEED333, an online fundraising initiative that raised nearly $300,000 in 33 days and provided 1.2 million meals to struggling families. For three years she co-organized and sponsored the largest multi-city food drops in US History partnering with Feed the Children, Salvation Army and The NBA Players Association. Galvanizing continued support to expand her philanthropic heart, co-founded a multi-million dollar direct-selling Social Enterprise (Humanity Unites Brilliance, HUB) which provided sustainable humanitarian funding to global non-profits while simultaneously enriching the lives of its membership through Personal Empowerment Education from Thought Leaders such as Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Michael Beckwith, Jean Houston and others. She developed and led domestic and international trips to engage the membership in hands-on service and as Chief Humanitarian Officer helped raise and disperse $1.8 million in funding. At the height of the 2009 recession with a dwindling membership and revenue, she was asked to be President HUB. She was able to save HUB’s humanitarian effort by merging the membership into WorldVentures, a $150 million global travel company and became the Executive Director of Manifest Foundation (now WorldVentures Foundation), where she expanded its Voluntourism travel program to eight countries for over 1000 participants, and helped to bring positive socio-economic change to over 20,000 children and families.
Then in February 2013 she sold everything she had acquired in 48 years of life, packed two suitcases and moved to Liberia, West Africa, where she continued her humanitarian work providing permanent clean water systems, early childhood education and empowering teachers in the fourth poorest nation on earth. When Ebola broke out she fled and moved to her “spiritual home” in Ecuador where she is currently writing her next books, “Open Your Mouth and Say AAHH: The Ancient Full Proof Art to Manifesting Your Dreams” and her spiritual memoir, “Walking with Angels: One Couples Radical Journey thru Lust, Love and Miracles” and is continuing to transform lives through uniquely designed Adventure-Contribution Travel experiences. Spryte practices her own form of YogAahh and meditation every morning, loves her long walks along the river with her Cairn Terrier, Barnaby, and dreaming with her soul-mate Ronnie.
