What do you call a person that has a lot of hobbies?

A person who has a lot of hobbies is often called a “polymath” or a “renaissance person.” These terms are used to describe someone who has a wide range of knowledge, skills, and interests in many different fields. Another term that is similar is “Jack of all trades, master of none,” which refers to a person who has a wide range of skills but does not excel in any one field.
