Duda was a youth product at Sport Club Corinthians Alagoano and, after just one season, in 1997, moved to Portugal with S.L. Benfica, but appeared very rarely with the Reds in official matches. After a few months in Japan and a brief stint with Rio Ave F.C. he signed with F.C. Porto, but was also highly unsuccessful there, finishing the 1999–2000 campaign with F.C. Alverca.
Duda had his most steady and successful period with Boavista Futebol Clube, being one of the most important offensive players in a side that conquered its sole national league title in 2001 (scoring ten league goals), alongside Elpídio Silva and Martelinho. After only 14 appearances in 2003–04, and no league goals whatsoever in his last two years, he returned to Brazil and Corinthians Alagoano.
After a spell with Associação Atlética Luziânia, Duda moved in January 2008 to Sliema Wanderers F.C. in Malta. This was not his first visit to the country, as he had been to the island while playing at Boavista in a UEFA Champions League second-round qualifier against Hibernians F.C. in August 2003, which ended in a 3–3 draw, with the player himself getting on the scoresheet.
