Is there a single word to describe someone who is good at everything? From a full variety of things... athletics, academics, even crafts & mechanics... one of those people who seems to have natural talent and drive for everything & almost seams to have the Midas touch?


I believe you are describing a polymath (synonymous with polyhistor):

A polymath (Greek: πολυμαθής, polymathēs, "having learned much")1 is a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas; such a person is known to draw on complex bodies of knowledge to solve specific problems.
1. The term was first recorded in written English in the early seventeenth century Harper, Daniel (2001). "Online Etymology Dictionary". Retrieved 2006-12-05.
