He usually sported a distinctive peroxide blonde hair, and spent most of his professional career in Portugal, amassing Primeira Liga totals of 170 games and three goals over the course of eight seasons, mainly in representation of Marítimo.
Born in Mineiros, Goiás, Wênio was relatively unknown when he signed for C.S. Marítimo from Sport Club Corinthians Alagoano in 2002. However, he went on to become an essential midfield element for the Madeira club, appearing in 30 Primeira Liga games in the 2003–04 campaign as it achieved a final UEFA Cup spot. On 12 November 2007 he scored a rare goal, in a 2–0 derby away win against C.D. Nacional.
In June 2008, Wênio signed a three-year contract with Vitória S.C. in Guimarães. After one season – and 16 top division matches – he was released, joining fellow league side Leixões S.C. shortly after.
After a brieft stint in Azerbaijan with FC Baku, Wênio returned to his country and region and signed with amateurs Morrinhos Futebol Clube. He continued to play in Brazil's lower leagues in the following years.
