Born in Alvorada, Rio Grande do Sul, Serjão only played lower league or amateur football in his country. In 2004, after a very brief spell in Uruguay, he moved to Portugal after signing with Portimonense SC in the second division, where his performances attracted the attention of Académica de Coimbra in the top level, who acquired the player in the 2006 January transfer window.
Serjão scored his first and only goal in the main category of Portuguese football in just his second appearance, contributing to a 3–0 home win against F.C. Paços de Ferreira on 4 February 2006. However, shortly after, he returned to division two, going on to spend two seasons with F.C. Vizela.
For the 2008–09 campaign, Serjão signed with Doxa Katokopias F.C. in the Cypriot First Division. He scored a career-best 24 goals to help his team to the eighth position among 14 clubs, but netted only 19 times in the next four years combined, also playing in the country's top flight and representing AEL Limassol, Alki Larnaca FC, Ermis Aradippou, Ethnikos Achna FC and AEP Paphos FC.
