Career

Denis was born in Jaú, São Paulo. A Ponte Preta youth graduate, he was promoted to the main squad in 2006, but was third-choice (behind Jean and Aranha). He made his first team debut on 24 February 2007, starting in a 1–2 away loss against Grêmio Barueri for the Campeonato Paulista championship.

Denis appeared regularly during that year's Série B, mainly profitting from Aranha's injury. He would spend the rest of his spell as a backup, however.

Denis moved to São Paulo on 22 January 2009. He made his debut for the club three days later, replacing injured Rogério Ceni in a 2–0 away win against Portuguesa. He would spend his first two years behind Ceni and Bosco.
