After completing the pre-med biology program at NNU, Mr. Vail taught biology lab courses for three years as a teaching fellow and adjunct professor. Courses included general biology, human anatomy and physiology, and introduction to biology. Simultaneously, he continued taking courses in electronics engineering and computer science that led to his second degree.

While at NNU, Mr. Vail assisted several departments in development of web pages and created two database applications for the Alumni Office: a ticket sales and management system for events like Homecoming and an application for organizing an alumni volunteer mentoring program. Since then, he has developed an additional database application for use in managing NNU's budget categories.
