Born in São Bernardo do Campo, Duda started playing organized football 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 club in official matches. After a few months in Japan and a brief stint with Rio Ave F.C. he signed with FC 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 FC, being one of the most important offensive players in a side that conquered its sole national league title in 2001 (scoring ten Primeira Liga 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 joined Associação Atlética Internacional (Limeira), switching shortly after to former club 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.
