I received my accounting degree from Louisiana State University in the spring of 2005. Upon graduation, I interned with Deloitte in Philadelphia, PA, followed by a full-time position in the internal audit department of their Dallas, Texas office. After returning home to Shreveport in the spring of 2007, I joined a local firm where I practiced in the areas of accounting and auditing, consulting, and tax planning.
After eight (8) years on the staff of these accounting firms, I started my practice, Wright Accounting & Consulting, L.L.C., intent on assisting Generation X and Millennial professionals and business owners with ties to the Shreveport-Bossier community. Specifically, I strive to aid clients in creating and preserving wealth over the long-term, and I am committed to adding value to their lives and businesses.
I am a licensed Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the state of Louisiana, a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Society of Louisiana Certified Public Accountants. I also received my certification as a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) in the spring of 2007, and I am currently an inactive member of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA).

In oil & gas, Wright Mineral Interests, L.L.C. holds mineral leases throughout Louisiana and east Texas. (Click on the links below to learn more about these LLCs)
I met my wife, Tiffany T. Wright, during my senior year of college at LSU. Despite the fact that we both grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana (even attending the same high school for a year), Tiffany and I were complete strangers until a chance meeting in January 2006. An immediate connection was established followed by a three year courtship, and we have been happily married since December 2008.
We have two children – son, Dixon, and daughter, Brynlee – whom we raise in our home town of Shreveport, Louisiana.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, hunting, fishing, and playing tennis and golf. Tiffany and I strive to impress our faith in God upon our children, as we are Christians that believe in Jesus Christ. We credit marriage success to God’s involvement and support within our union, and we continue to seek His guidance
