Pena was born in Vitória da Conquista, Bahia. After playing in modest clubs in his country he had his first taste of European football in 1998, but only lasted a few months with Grasshopper Club Zürich, moving then to Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras.
In 2000 Pena signed with FC Porto, where he was the top goalscorer in the Primeira Liga in his first season with 22 goals while also adding the Taça de Portugal. After falling out with coach Octávio Machado he was loaned to RC Strasbourg in France, where he failed to settle; two other loans ensued, and the player experienced some success at both S.C. Braga and C.S. Marítimo.
Released by Porto in June 2005, Pena returned to Brazil. After a spell with Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas he saw out his career with modest sides, retiring in 2011 at the age of 37.
