In 2002, Ralf began playing for Taboao da Serra, working his way up through the youth academy and finding his way into professional football. Ralf made his senior debut for Imperatiz, in 2004, and played at the team for three seasons.
After starting out on the bench, Ralf quickly established himself as a first team player, scoring 8 goals in 49 appearances and mastering his position as a defensive cover in the midfield. He moved up the ranks and signed with XV de Novembro in 2007. After 21 games, he moved to Soceidade Esportivo de Gama, playing every single game for both teams.
In 2008, he moved to Esporte Clube Noroeste, where he played 18 games before moving on to Barueri in 2008-09.
