Hi you guys! What phrases do you use for a person who is both left-handed and right-handed?

Thanks very much!

There is only one that I am aware of...ambidextrous. I looked up "ambidextrous" to see if there were any synonyms and there were many listed. Surprisingly (at least, for me) they were almost all negative; Janus-faced, duplicitous, deceitful, crooked, dishonest, and so on. If I heard someone being referred to as ambidextrous, those things would never have come to mind.
