Brady started his career as a newspaper journalist in Adelaide, Australia, but moved to the UK about two years ago (his father is British).

Since then he has lived in Nottingham and worked for the BBC, reporting for News Online, East Midlands Today and various BBC radio stations.

As our iCan reporter, Brady will be looking for people who are passionate about issues in their community, no matter how big or small.

"You don't have to be famous or involved in a national campaign… sometimes the most interesting stories and important issues are local or on a small scale, " he said.

"I remember when I was reporting for a newspaper in Australia, there was a handful of people who became concerned about the noise being made by a neighbour's refrigerator."

"They thought their concerns were trivial and not worthy of publicity, but within two days of appearing in the newspaper there was interest from media around the world, including the BBC World Service."

"Needless to say, the owner of a small refrigerator in suburban Adelaide called in a mechanic pretty quickly after getting a call from journalists in London."

"It's my hope that people will visit the iCan website and use it as a tool to help with their own campaigns."

"But I'd also like to hear from these people myself and discuss the possibility of running stories on BBC TV, radio and online."
