McKenzie was born in Durban, South Africa, and played two games at Melbourne before being cleared to VFA side Footscray in early 1915.

His career was interrupted when he enlisted with the army, but after his service ended he won two premierships with Footscray in 1919 and 1920 before returning to the VFL for three years as a ruckman with St Kilda from 1922 to 1924. In 1927 he was on the St Kilda committee and an applicant for their coaching position. When George Haines was selected as coach he resigned from the committee.

After his VFL career ended, MacKenzie went into the hotel business in Moe, then later in Corowa. In 1931 he coached Corowa, and had also captain/coached Moe when he lived there.

He was killed in a road accident when his car passed a narrow bridge at the same time as a truck carrying the frame of a house and was struck by a piece of timber hanging from its side. The driver of the truck was prosecuted for manslaughter but found not guilty.
