Born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, Michael’s love for the beach and the country roads were a big part of his life; he is truly Tide & Country at heart. Growing up, he found a passion for historic homes, lighting, and art. Following in his father footsteps, he started his career in heating, air conditioning, and electrical, working on many historical residential and commercial buildings.

Mackenzie S. Waters

VP of Operations

Mackenzie, a native of Savannah, Georgia, graduated from Armstrong State University in 2016. She is currently working towards her MBA from Brenau University. She found her love for the environment and all animals at a very young age. She wanted to create a brand to celebrate the southern way of living no matter where you are, so she and her father set out to start Tide & Country. Growing up on the coast of Savannah with all of the water/land, beautiful homes, mixed culture, and lot of furry and aquatic friends, it made sense to combine it all. Other than making her dreams come true and continuing her education, Mackenzie loves to try new restaurants, enjoy live music, campfires, and cozying up with her little shop dog, Cosmo.
