Jordan Glover wasn't one to think about leaving a legacy for future generations, but then children came along and everything changed.
"We live, we die and in between we capture some moments and put them on Facebook... then you are forgotten," he said.
The birth of his twins brought concerns to the surface that certainly were not there before, 'if something happens, what is left behind?'
With his partner, Claire Coomer, Mr Glover made a leap from his day job - organising subcontractors for Lendlease, a multinational construction company - and developed an app.
Launched two weeks ago, Legend Legacy, captures life stories for family and friends.
"It is so people can see who you are, it is an intimate platform as opposed to the 500 strangers you have on social media platforms," Mr Glover said.
"Facebook doesn't go into detail about who you are or how you have become who you are.
"I wanted something that captured my life in case something happened, but there wasn't anything so we made it ourselves."
Storing all of your home movies, and sharing answers to questions via video are just some of the things a user can do on the app.
"The biggest benefit is when a loved one passes away, you obviously grieve, but to then have their life story told through video and always available is extremely special," Mr Glover said.
The father of two said many people are moving away from social media which has evolved into platforms for escape rather than connection.
"We used to openly share videos of family, but now with all the marketing we are bombarded with these spaces are taken up by that.
"Social media is just a snapshot in time or a forced fake smile at gatherings.
"Capturing your life story allows your loved ones to see, hear and remember you for who you truly are because who really knows or remembers the real you."
