Born in Maputo, Paíto began his professional career at Sporting Clube de Portugal, in the 2002–03 season. He became a regular in his third year and, on 26 January 2005, scored his only goal for the Lions, in a 3–3 draw against S.L. Benfica for the Portuguese Cup (penalty shootout loss), in a solo effort.
After the arrival in January 2006, on loan from Valencia CF, of Portuguese international Marco Caneira, Paíto was deemed surplus to requirements and left, also loaned, to Vitória de Guimarães. He was an undisputed starter during his tenure, as the Minho team eventually dropped down a level.
Purchased by La Liga club RCD Mallorca, Paíto immediately returned to Portugal, being loaned to S.C. Braga for the duration of the campaign. Released by the Balearic Islands side without making any official appearances, he joined FC Sion.
After three solid seasons in the Swiss Super League, Paíto stayed in Switzerland, signing with fellow league team Neuchâtel Xamax. After the latter went bankrupt, in January 2012 he joined FC Vaslui in Romania, reuniting with former Sporting coach Augusto Inácio.
Paíto spent the first half of the following campaign without a club, signing in early January 2013 with Skoda Xanthi F.C. in Greece. He made his Superleague debut on the 27th, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–0 away win against PAOK FC.
Paíto started representing Mozambique at age 20. He was recalled in April for the 2002 COSAFA Cup, nearly two years after his last international. Additionally, he took part in the 2003 COSAFA Cup, the 2006 FIFA World Cup 2006 World Cup qualification, the 2004 COSAFA Cup, 2008 Africa Cup of Nations qualification and the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.
