Any other sound designers out there?

I'm an aspiring sound designer (as well as writer) and was wondering if there were any people out there in the industry or have worked in it that might have any advice for getting a foot in the door!? I'm proficient in Pro Tools 12, and well rehearsed in both production sound recording and in the studio doing foley and post-production mixing, though I still have a long way to go before I could be considered a professional! I'm quite interested in the more post-production side of things (I think).

Career success, Otello. Sound design is one of the unique disciplines. Tip#1 the source has to be the cleanest and the purest sound you can get. It will pay off in the back end.

Walk around with as many recording devices and capture everything - build your library, then buy other libraries. Then start getting a reel together (even if its your temp over a already-made film), then find a mentor you can work under.
