Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Aladdin Connolly and I am the founder of A&A Accounting. I am a speaker on Boston Money Matters Radio, as “The Tax Guy”. I am an Enrolled Agent licensed to Practice before the IRS.

I bring an unusual background and experience to Accounting. I was born in Washington DC. Shortly after birth my parents began to travel the world. Over the following decades our travels took us to over 40 countries while our family grew. My mom had eleven children! I began my career in humanitarian work in East Europe, where I was director of a Children’s Foundation in Romania. I moved to Massachusetts in 2001 and began my Accounting career in 2006. I love meeting new people, and sharing new experiences. I love discovery in all it’s forms. If you prefer to work with a “real person”, rather than a stuffed suit, let’s meet!

Gabriel Connolly

I am Gabriel Connolly.  After graduating, Cum Laude, from the University of Massachusetts with a degree in Economics, my hands-on accounting experience began after I joined the Peace Corps working as an Economic Development Consultant in Paraguay.  Most of the small businesses that needed my help used a mental accounting method and had no idea how much money they were making because they kept no records.  I worked with them to create a simple general ledger in a notebook.  As their confidence grew, we created better accounting solutions that prepared them to grow their businesses.

When I returned to America in 2017, I used the experience I gained abroad to work for my father, Aladdin, building accounting solutions for individuals as well as any sized business.

At A & A Accounting, we know that businesses need more than Bookkeepers. They need an all-inclusive business they can rely on to give good tax and strategic advice which will maximize their potential.

We enjoy partnering with individuals as well as dedicated and passionate business owners, especially those with a vision for future growth.


Let me introduce myself.  I am Barbara Cowen.  I joined A&A Accounting in 2016, bringing with me 7 years of experience working for a CPA firm in Central Massachusetts.  My Accounting experience includes bookkeeping, payroll, and processing tax returns.

My priority is assisting our clients with their growing businesses by providing them with accurate bookkeeping and payroll support.  Having run my own small website development and digital marketing business for over 20 years, I understand many of the issues that some of our small business clients encounter.

I am a graduate of Northeastern University in Boston.
