Seriously guys, I'm really terrible with this kind of thing so any suggestions would be appreciated.
Honestly, the guy I (might) like is a complete stranger as of right now. I've only talked to him once, and it was completely professional. He works on the college campus I go to and I genuinely cannot come up with any excuse to talk to him other than telling him that I'm interested, so I think I'm going to just need to be totally upfront about it. If it makes any difference at all, he's an international student from Australia (we're in the U. S.) and he seems very confident, at least in what he does.
I've heard many times that guys like it when girls are bold and make the first move. Is this true? And if anyone is Australian/knows anything about Aussie guys, do you think they'd appreciate a gesture like this as well?

Aussie guy here.
Yes I believe the vast majority of guys like girls coming up to them, it's just a bit jarring at first since we're not used to it. That's not to say you shouldn't do it. It's still a good thing.
I don't see why an Australian guy would have a problem with it. It's a pretty laid-back culture and we're not ultra-traditional or anything like that. I guarantee it'll go smoother than most instances where a guy goes up to a girl, haha. Even if he's definitely not interested, I find it *extremely* unlikely that he's going to be creeped out or offended, etc. You'll be fine, go for it.3
