I would suggest that you were hired, in part, not because of your
*hobby*, but because of your *knowledge*. Yes, you may have
developed that knowledge through practicing the hobby, but what's
important is that you have it, not where or how you got it.

An appropriate question to ask of interviewees might be "Do you
have any special knowledge that would contribute to your ability
to do the job?", not "What are your hobbies?"
